My experience of 21 years as a Mechanical Engineer at various levels of management has taught me to understand and communicate mathematical concepts to people who may not have a background in math.

My 20 years as a home inspector allows me to describe and explain concepts cited in the Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Building codes to the lay person so they can pursue repairs and corrective actions.

I am fluent in Spanish and allows me to communicate mathematical concepts to persons who have trouble communicating in English.

I am also a volunteer for the First Tee Contra Costa Golf program.
