IT Department
Team Member since 2011

Do what you love, love what you do. If you love what you do, it's not 'work'.

Describe the work you do at the Credit Union.

The work I do in my department ranges from taking calls from our team members to fixing a computer or network issue. I provide network support, answer, evaluate and prioritize incoming phone calls, email, and in-person requests for assistance from users. My position allows me to interact with team members, and vendors on a daily basis. Being able to help our Credit Union team as well as assist my own IT team is extremely satisfying.

What was your first job?

My first job was working for the City of Montebello doing pool maintenance. I learned about hard work very early, but I loved it.

How did you come to be an SCE Credit Union team member?

I’ve done IT work for about 20 years now, including my education. I started out in a paper company where I was an IT administrator. From there my career in IT got started. I was looking for an IT job closer to home and saw an opening at the Credit Union and applied. I’ve been here 11 years… and I still say it’s the best job.

How do you spend your free time?

I like spending my free time with my beautiful wife and four kids. We all love to travel and go to the beach as much as we can. We like to hike and take long drives throughout California. My hobby is tropical fish. I have African Cichlid tanks, which are very colorful freshwater fish. I also love sports, UCLA football and basketball. GO BRUINS!
