A little about me...

Not only do I work at CSUSM, I love the San Marcos community so much that I also serve on the Parks and Recreation Commission. San Marcos has some amazing parks, if you haven't visited Double Peak Park (southwest of CSUSM) should! Why? On windy Santa Ana days, the views are incredible!

The typical weekend for me is gardening (maintaining niwaki shrubs takes time and attention to detail), eating sushi, playing Pokémon Go, hiking and if the weather is just right...I take ride my FJR1300 motorcycle through hairpin turns on winding mountain roads for fresh air.

Advice for First-Year Students

Practice self reflection (like journaling) to ensure that you know you've made some progress. All mistakes are learning opportunities. Be original and advocate for yourself. "If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original." - Sir Ken Robinson

"If not you, then who?" IDK who came up with this quote but I love this quote because if you're not going to take control your life's journey, then who do you think will do it for you...?
