I have enjoyed teaching Political Science and working with students at De Anza since 2009. My main focus is on student success and empowerment on campus and in our community, so please utilize me as a resource! I am a second-generation Vietnamese-American born and raised here in the Bay Area. I enjoy spending time with my wife Linda and our daughter Tessa. I also enjoy fishing, running, fantasy sports and I am a huge fan of the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team. I look forward to meeting you in my course and to partner with you for academic success.
