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 teach Humanities at Citrus College, Pasadena City College, Chaffey College and Rio Hondo 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.
