Professor of Computer Science
Area of expertise?
I received my bachelor’s and master’s here at Sacramento State and my doctorate at Colorado State University. All are in computer science.
What’s your music preference?
I listen to a lot of jazz. The CD in my car right now is John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps.” The CD playing in my office recently was some C.P.E. Bach concertos.
I just finished reading The Eight by Katherine Neville. But, my favorite book is probably The Money Player, an autobiography of a ping pong hustler.
Favorite city to visit?
Too many to list them all, but San Francisco, New York, and Rome are up there.
Who most influenced you to become a teacher?
My father recently retired from St. Francis High School in Sacramento. If I can be half the teacher he was, I would be proud.
