I have been employed at The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California since January of 2002. I was hired shortly before I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona where I earned my BS in Computer Science. I first became interested in computers when I was just a little kid, and took my first programming course in 7th grade. There are many aspects about software engineering that interest me like code architecture, usability and design, database design/modeling, as well as project management. One of the rewarding, and fun, experiences I had over the years has been the opportunities to teach, which I am hoping to perform again some time. In 2009, I earned an MBA with an emphasis on Information Systems from the University of Redlands.
As far as my personal life goes, I have too many hobbies that my pocket book can't keep up with like Photography, Motorcycling, Cars, Gadgets, collecting and building LEGO, collecting Transformers (new and old).
