I have always been fascinated with mathematics and sciences when I was growing up as a child, despite the lack of educational resources in the Philippines, especially in the 1900s.
In college, I took up B.S. in Zoology (as premed student), and B.S. in Electronics and Communications Engineering (my personal preference). I finished both degrees at the oldest Catholic University in Asia, University of Santo Tomas, established in 1611.
I got employed in electronics manufacturing (Analog Devices and Zilog) where we built integrated circuits (ICs), mostly DACs, ADCs and microprocessors. The bonding machines really had me thinking about robotics.
I then chose to embark upon the invitation of some districts in southern Texas to become a mathematics teacher. And in 2001 I moved to Houston.
In SY 2023-2024, I will teach Computer Science and Math, and will continue to sponsor Computer Science and Junior Achievement/Business clubs; also, I am open to sponsor club that may deal with Engineering and Technology - 3D Design and Printing (using AutoCAD, Inventor or Fusion 360; or just printing from downloaded STL file); Electronics - Arduino programming.
I love taking pictures of the wild flora and fauna, and fly drone to see the whole land scape/area. I love making 3D designs in CAD (Inventor, AutoCAD, and Fusion 360) for various projects like robotic platforms, CNC and laser wood signs, and useless/useful 3D printed parts. I sometimes read fiction books by Grisham, Follet, Crichton or Ludlum if given lengthy free time.
