About Professor Morvan

Math is power!

I have been a full-time faculty member in the Math Department at Cypress College since the Fall of 2002. I love teaching and really look forward to helping you be successful in your math classes.

Educational Background

I got my bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, where I attended on a volleyball scholarship. I also went through the Institute of Aviation while I was there and got my Private, Commercial, Instrument and Multi-engine pilot’s licenses. I received my Master’s Degree in Applied Mathematics at CSU Long Beach and was awarded the top Math Graduate Student Award.

Personal Info About Me

Besides math, I have a burning passion for music. I am a lead guitar player/singer in my own blues rock band. Each May after the school year ends, we hit the road in our tour van traveling to shows all throughout the USA, Canada and even once to Europe! We have 5 CDs out, have won some awards, been the subject of a TV special and played so many great shows that I’ve lost count. Our biggest audience was for 6,000 people at a blues festival in Canada.

Almost every summer, in between touring, I manage to take a week’s vacation and go backpacking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with some close friends. We all love the feeling of being out in the wilderness, having with us only what we can carry on our backs, and climbing some of the most beautiful trails in the world to witness places most people will never see!

I also love to cycle and feel fortunate to live in SoCal where I can ride my bike almost every day of the year. When you come in to my office hours, you may see my bike parked right there in my office.

I am here to help you succeed!

You are invited to come by anytime during my office hours for help with your studies or just to talk about your future in math. I believe all students can be successful and it is my goal to help you achieve your dreams.
