I am a graduate of San Francisco State University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in Computer Science in 1981. Since graduation, I have worked as a professional programmer and project manager in Silicon Valley. Among the companies I have worked for are Intuit, where I was a project manager for Quicken, and Aclara BioSciences where I was a biotech programmer and manager. In 2006 I transitioned to teaching and have taught Computer Science and Philosophy at the high school and middle school levels. I am currently a Computer Science teacher at The Nueva School in Hillsborough, CA. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Computer Science and English. My students have gone on to MIT, Stanford, and UC. I am a firm proponent of the "growth mindset", believing that focused effort can lead to mastery of any subject, and I try to impart this appreciation to all of my students. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, baseball, basketball, backpacking, and fly-fishing.
