I was grew up in Harrisonburg, Virginia, in the scenic Shenandoah Valley. I lived in Pennsylvania for nine years, studying math and computer science at Messiah College and earning a Ph.D. in math at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011. After that, taught math and computer science at Huntington University in Indiana for two years. I married my wife, Sarah, in December 2011. In August 2013, I became a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications.

I took the following photos, except for the ones in which I am pictured. If you refresh this page, you will see different photos!

When I'm not doing math, I enjoy:

  • juggling
  • reading
  • strategy games
  • photography
  • travel
  • woodworking
  • pizza
