Prior to Vanguard I taught a Neurobiology Lab at UCI and was an adjunct faculty at Mt. San Antonio Community College and Los Angeles Trade Technical College.  Areas of interest include substance abuse, neurological disorders, and developmental disorders.

Apart from Vanguard, I am involved in services aimed at providing food and clothing to the homeless of Downtown Los Angeles. I am also involved in a tutoring and college-preparation program for high school youth in Orange County.
