Assistant Professor, Humanities @ Norco College


I’ve lived in Southern California most of my life. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in History and Political Science at Vanguard University of Southern California.

After finishing my degree, I lived four years in Uganda, East Africa, working with
Sudanese refugees in a settlement managed by the UNHCR. It was my privilege to teach in local churches and in a pastoral training school for Catholic and Protestant leaders.

Upon returning to the States, I met and married my beautiful wife. Within our first year of marriage, we taught English under a one year contract in South Korea at Korea Nazarene University.

I completed my Master of Arts Degree in Humanities from California State University, Dominguez Hills. With the support of Dr. Benjamin Mijuskovic, I completed a thesis on the history of an argument in defense of dualism as it pertains to the philosophies of Roderick M. Chisholm and Richard Swinburne.

I taught Humanities at Citrus CollegePasadena City CollegeChaffey College and Rio Hondo College for six years before landing my dream job as an Assistant Professor in Humanities at Norco College.  I incorporate technology in the classroom when possible.  In order to serve my students interests, I have developed a Humanities Online Resource.  I hope it will further reinforce the beauty and excitement of Humanities for each one.

I am currently pursuing a Master of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies from Johns Hopkins University. My research interests include: History of Ideas, World Religions, Philosophy of Mind, History of Philosophy, Art History, and Historiography.

In my personal life, I enjoy reading, watching movies and spending time with my family.
