I was born in Houston, Texas, but I grew up in Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania. In addition to doing school work, I was a three sport athlete and a member of the symphonic band. I graduated from Manheim Township High School in Lancaster, PA in 1999.

I continued my academic and athletic careers at Franklin & Marshall College (Lancaster, PA) and graduated in May 2003 with a B.A. in Mathematics and Physics. I was a pole vaulter for the Franklin & Marshall Diplomats and was selected as an Academic All-American and an NCAA post-graduate scholarship recipient in Track and Field. Here are the press releases:

I then moved to College Station, Texas, where in 2009 I received a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Texas A&M University. While in Texas I was actively involved in swing dancing.

I lived in Europe from 2009-2011 where I was a postdoc in Florence, Italy on an NSF international research fellowship at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Florence.

From 2011-2013 I was a postdoc in the Research Training Group on Representation Theory, Combinatorics and Geometry at the University of California, Berkeley.

Since 2013 I've been an Assistant Professor at Auburn.

In addition to doing mathematics and traveling, I'm occasionally passionate about photography.
