**Education:**

M.S. 2011 Mathematics, University of Oregon

M.A. 2002 Economics, University of California at Santa Barbara

B.A. 2001 Business Economics, University of California at Santa Barbara

**Teaching:**

I teach Math 60, 65, 95, 111, and 243. In the past I've also taught Math 112 and 251..

**Mathematical Interests/Specialties:**

I love discrete math, especially number theory and combinatorics.

**Personal Interests:**

Family: My wife Megan (a Mental Health Therapist) and dog Zuma (a ball fetching extraordinaire) are here in Talent. My older brother (an Air Traffic Controller) lives in San Jose. The rest of our immediate family is in Klamath Falls, Oregon and Castro Valley, California.

Friends: Unfortunately all of my travels have left me with some friends that are far away. I try to make several trips yearly to see old friends. The next couple are for a Duck's game in Colorado and a BBQ / Bad Golf Tournament in California.

Sports: Back before I was old and fragile, I played rugby and boxed. Now I limit myself to rec soccer, softball and pickup basketball. I spend too much of my free time watching or reading about my 49ers, A's, Warriors and Ducks.
