I earned my Bachelors of Arts in English at California State University, Fullerton and my Masters of Arts in English with a focus on Rhetoric at the University of California, Irvine. I studied business for the first three years at Fullerton, but changed at the fourth to my minor. I have worked at private schools teaching English here in the states as well as in Taiwan. I also worked as a systems analyst at Southern California Edison.
I am a member of the International Society for the History of Rhetoric and I try to bring a little bit of the academic discussions to my students here at Upland High School.
