    Welcome to CTE IT Essentials, Internet Engineering 1 and Internet Engineering 2 Classes at TVHS.

    I am excited to teach another year at TVHS. My background education has been Computer Programming, Math and Physics. I have Master’s degree in Physics. I started learning Computer Programming while I was in high school. I am proficient in number of programming languages and platforms.

    I have more than 15 years of experience as professional Software Developer for client/ server, web based industries and Software Validation Engineer for pharmaceutical and medical device companies. I am very passionate about getting the next generation of students to be proficient in computer hardware & software because I believe every field requires the work force to have a basic knowledge about computers.

    I will be coaching teams for variety of Cyber Security Competitions. The competitions that we compete are AFA CyberPatriots, National Cyber League, Socal Cyber Cup, and various Capture the Flag events. 

    On a personal note, I like running. I have done 5K ,10K, 15K, Half marathons and Full marathon races.

     I strongly believe in the following quote by Thomas A. Edison: 

    Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
