About Me

I was born and raised in the birthplace of more players in the National Baseball Hall of Fame — including Hank Aaron, Willie McCovey, and Satchel Paige — than any city other than New York and Los Angeles.

I moved away from my hometown in 2000, the same year my new residence became the smallest city ever to be named "Intelligent Community of the Year."

I attended the first state-chartered university in the United States, where I earned my bachelor's degree, master's degree, and doctorate in mathematics.

After I graduated, I left the Southeast for the third snowiest major city in the United States, where I spent three years as a postdoc at the university to which Susan B. Anthony pledged the entire value of her life insurance policy in order to open the university to women.

In 2017, I headed back south to become an assistant professor at the university that produced the second third all-time leading scorer in NBA history and the only former NFL player with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Now, I live in Stillwater with my wife Jessica and our two labs, Hank and Leo. If you've been paying attention thus far, you know who our first pup was named after.
