I came to Lindsey in 2003 because I believed in its mission and because of a statement written by President Luckey that read, "We know who we are, and we know who we serve."  My undergraduate experience was also from a small college where I learned what caring faculty can add to an education.  I took a somewhat roundabout path in arriving at Lindsey.  Before my PhD, I worked in the aerospace industry for five-and-a-half years.  I have taught since 1994 with a short interruption to work with a children's museum and to do some consulting.

Outside of mathematics my main interests are in my family, whitewater paddling and home improvement.  My current project is building a waterfall, river flow and cave in my backyard.  Mathematical modeling and numerical analysis are the areas in mathematics that get most of my attention, although I would like to learn more about the interaction between math, music and art.

My goal in the classroom is to make mathematics more accessible to more people.  I try to convey my enthusiasm for the wonders of mathematics to our students.  I especially enjoy showing how today's technology can allow us to experiment with and to apply all sorts of interesting structures in mathematics.  Visit my homepage for more information.
