I grew up in Montana and attended Montana State University for an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. I went to U.C. Berkeley for graduate school and worked in the field of dynamical systems under the direction of Prof. Charles Pugh. I taught for two years at Marshall University before moving to the Boston area to teach at Stonehill.
