Mazor worked as a computer designer at Intel for 6 years, but in 1975 moved to Brussels, as an application engineer helping customers to use Intel products. When he returned home to California in 1976, he started his industry teaching career, in which he has been active the past 25 years. Stan interested in teaching because learned about it from the excellent SFSU teachers, especially professors Frank Sheehan and Frank Williams. Teaching in industry is quite different than college--no grades, 1 week classes, and students are customers.
Some interesting teaching assignments took him to South Africa, Stockholm, and Nanjing. Since China was quite exotic and different than California in the early 80's, he enjoyed his trip to Nanjing the most.
His recent hobbies are cooking and castle design. He particularly likes Norman style castles and French cooking. When Stan was on his assignments in Europe and Asia, he had a chance to learn about other cooking styles and building architecture. He also took a class in making "Peking" style duck.
Stan and Maurine have two sons who are both musicians. Mike lives in NY and plays jazz and Mark lives in Concord and plays trumpet.
Although Mazor and his teammates, M. Hoff and F. Faggin, worked on the first microcomputers 25 years ago, they have recently been given some recognition including: The Inventor's Hall of Fame, The Ron Brown Award, and the Kyoto Prize. They are glad that their chips have been useful and hopefully improved the quality of life, and they appreciate the recognition they received. He thought that it was nice to recently be inducted into the SFSU Alumni Hall of Fame.
