Christian Pinedo, MA

OAT Program Assistant cpinedo1@csustan.edu

My name is Christian Pinedo, an Administrative Support Assistant at CSU Stanislaus. Before working for the Office of Academic Technology I worked as a chef in various restaurants in California. Originally from San Diego, I moved to the Central Valley to earn both my B.A. & M.A. in History right here at Stan State. I love studying all subjects in history but I specialize in food history. I work to assist faculty and staff with academic technology be it, Canvas, Panopto, Zoom, or Blackboard. Helping faculty utilize online tools to better realize their courses is rewarding in and of itself. Outside of work, I love to cook, socialize, travel, and play League of Legends! Feel free to reach out to me at cpinedo1@csustan.edu.
