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, espcially in the 19xx. :)
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 microprocesor. 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.
At Carnegie, I teach Computer Science, and sponsor Robotics Club; also, I am open to sponsor clubs that may deal with Engineering and Technology - 3D Design and Printing (using AutoCAD, Inventor or Fusion 360; or maybe from downloaded STL file); Electronics - Arduino programming.
Free time for me is reconnecting with my niece's lovely family who recently moved here in Houston, and going to museum/parks. I love taking pictures of the wild flora and fauna, and fly drone to see the whole landscape/area. I love making 3D designs in CAD (Inventor, AutoCAD, and Fusion 360) for various projects like robotic platform, CNC wood design, and useless/useful 3D printed parts. I sometimes read fiction books by Grisham, Follet, Crichton or Ludlum.
