I was born in California and grew up in Roseville. I attended Oakmont High School. Later I attended Sierra Community College where I majored in drafting technology. I transferred to California State University at Sacramento where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. I have worked at NEC Electronics America, Inc./Renesas Electronics America, Inc./TSI Semiconductors for over 20 years. I originally worked as a draftsman for an Architect, where I learned the trade of residential drafting & design. My drafting & design business is a side venture I operate out of my own home. This allows me to offer residential drafting & design services at the lowest possible cost.
