When I was 19 yers old, I decided to join the U.S. Army. After an honorable discharge, I attended Highline Community College where I earned an AA degree. I then transferred to Seattle University where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After graduating from Seattle University, I met my wife and raised two beautiful children.
My passion to teach eventually led me to pursue a master’s degree while teaching fulltime at and received a Master of Science in Computer Systems and Information Security from City University of Seattle. Along with an MS in Information security, I also earned various IT professional certifications such as Microsoft Certified System Engineer, Cisco Certified Network Associate, and Cisco Certified Academy Instructor, CompTIA A+ and Net+.
Prior to teaching, I have been working in the IT industry designing, implementing, managing, and securing information system. In 2013, I was brought along by Highline College in Des Moines, Washington to teach network security courses. While teaching, I have founded Cisco Networking Academy and CompTIA Academy Partner and I am very proud of it because this partnership provides invaluable learning tools and the job opportunity to our students.
