I grew up 30 minutes from campus in Moreno Valley. I attended Vista Heights Middle School (Go Wildcats!) and Canyon Springs High School (Go Cougars!). I've been a full-time lecturer in the Philosophy Department at Cal State San Bernardino since 2017. I earned undergraduate degrees in sociology (Cal State Fullerton) and philosophy (UC Riverside), and a Ph.D. in philosophy (USC). I'm obsessed with heavy metal and screamo music. I also listen to 80s and 90s glam metal (I eagerly await its triumphant return). Here are some other things I like: animals, Lakers basketball, Dodgers baseball, Trojans football, caffeine, and traveling. My dream is to someday make a lot of money listening to heavy metal while hanging out with animals and drinking energy drinks.
