He is an alum, trustee and adjunct faculty at Palo Alto University, serves in the Training Advisory Committee for the American Psychological Association (APA) Minority Fellowship Program for the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Fellowship, a Past President of the California Psychological Association, and recently received the APA Div. 31 2020 Award for Outstanding Psychologist in a State, Provincial or Territory Psychological Association.
The Coalition of Housers, or CoHo, is a network of new and emerging leaders working in and advocating for affordable housing in the South Bay.
