Born and raised in Malaysia, I arrived in the US with $1000 and a small suitcase in my early twenties. I joke that I "spent WAY too many years in school" earning MSc and PhD degrees in engineering (University of Pennsylvania) and before that a BSc (Hons) from the University of Edinburgh (Scotland). After a successful engineering and management career at the National Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine, I semi-retired to San Luis Obispo (SLO) and found new passions in volunteer work and golf. Before long, a new career at Edward Jones beckoned. I currently serve as a board director of the Bay Foundation of the Morro Bay National Estuary Program and an advisory member of Cal Poly Arts. I am also a past board director and president of the SLO Symphony and the Piedras Blancas Light Station Association.
George Gorrindo is my Branch Office Administrator. George is also a classically trained singer, and enjoys performing with several local ensembles, including the SLO Master Chorale, Resonance, St. Stephen's Episcopal Church and Central Coast Gilbert & Sullivan, among others.
