Educational Background

BA in Religious Studies 
The University of California, Santa Barbara (commonly referred to as UC Santa Barbara or UCSB) is a public research university and one of the 10 general campuses of the University of California system. The main campus is located on a 1,022-acre (414 ha) site near Goleta, California, United States, 8 miles (13 km) from Santa Barbara and 100 miles (160 km) northwest of Los Angeles. Tracing its roots back to 1891 as an independent teachers' college, UCSB joined the University of California system in 1944 and is the third-oldest general-education campus in the system. UCSB traces its origins back to the Anna Blake School which was founded in 1891 and offered training in home economics and industrial arts. The Anna Blake School was taken over by the state in 1909 and became the Santa Barbara State Normal School. Intense lobbying by an interest group in the City of Santa Barbara, led by Thomas Storke and Pearl Chase, persuaded the State Legislature, Governor Earl Warren, and the Regents of the University of California to move the State College over to the more research-oriented University of California system in 1944. The State College system sued to stop the takeover, but the Governor did not support the suit. A state initiative was passed, however, to stop subsequent conversions of State Colleges to University of California campuses. From 1944 to 1958 the school was known as Santa Barbara College of the University of California, before taking on its current name. When the vacated Marine Corps training station in Goleta was purchased for the rapidly-growing college, Santa Barbara City College moved into the vacated State College buildings.

Career History

Fund Advisor
2013 - Current
Capital World Global Investors (CWGI) is the investment adviser to the American Funds Group, a family of 30 funds marketed to individuals exclusively through financial advisers and other intermediaries. American Funds are also used as investment vehicles for 401ks, other retirement plans, variable annuities and 529 college savings plans. The funds have the following characteristics: (1) a long-term, value-oriented approach (2) long-established, global research (3) a multiple portfolio counselor system that combines teamwork with individual accountability (4) experienced, long-tenured investment professionals and (5) a commitment to low operating expenses, among the lowest in the fund industry.^CWGI uses a Multiple Portfolio Counselor System. The assets of each fund are divided into smaller, more manageable portions. Each portion is managed by a portfolio counselor who operates autonomously, investing his or her portion as though it were an entire fund (subject to fund objectives and overall guidelines). Research analysts typically manage a segment as well (usually about 20% of the fund's assets), bringing their expertise directly to bear on the fund's results. Portfolio counselors are free to make their own decisions. As a fund's assets grow, new counselors can be added.^Investment decisions are based on internal research. Equity research is comprehensive and bottom-up while at the same time constantly monitoring broader economic, political, currency and interest rate trends. Investment research is proprietary and used solely by CWGI portfolio managers.
