Joe received his bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership at Biola University in La Mirada, California. He has been working at CSUSB for 6 years now and he likes the direction ITS is moving with the various systems upgrades. ITS’s core focus is centered on the student’s success providing whatever support is needed.

Joe is currently working on the implementation of the Concur Travel System which went live to the entire campus September 2015 . Previously, Joe helped with developing the EtranscriptCa/DARS/PeopleSoft interface, which transfers electronic transcripts from the California Community Colleges and loads them into the DARS and PeopleSoft systems.

Personally, Joe spends all his spare time entertaining his three granddaughters and in December, he will be welcoming another granddaughter as well as a grandson to the family. That will keep him busy for a while but in a year or two, Joe and his wife are looking forward to taking a Hawaiian cruise. If Joe could only choose one food, BBQ tops the list for him. In addition, he enjoys watching Wyatt Earp with Kevin Costner or any of the Clint Eastwood westerns.

To Joe, CSUSB is a great place to work and he stated that his fellow ITS coworkers are the best. From the time a student applies to CSUSB to the day they graduate, ITS plays a major role and Joe enjoys being a part of it.
