About me:

                I am an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at Seattle Pacific University, where I’ve been since 2012.  My academic and research focus is in Statistics, but I remain at heart a general mathematician, enjoying math for both the sake of its beauty and applicability.  I received my undergraduate degree from George Fox University and my graduate degrees from The University of Montana.

                My wife (Jenny) and I love the outdoors, reveling in the beauty God has placed all around us.  Together with our daughters—that’s right, two daughters now!— we would enjoy hiking, biking, walking, swimming, camping, and going to places like the beach, the mountains, the zoo, or local parks.  However, having two young daughters takes so much time that we are usually limited to parks, the zoo, and projects around the house.  We also enjoy watching movies at home or catching up on TV shows on DVD.  God never ceases to bless us!  We thank Him for our wonderful, growing family.

                Please feel free to stop by during my office hours with questions/concerns or just to chat.  And if it’s not during my scheduled office hours, just make an appointment or come in if the door is open.  (Schedule)
