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.

Here are a few of my favorite things in and around Florence - bests

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 working at Auburn University. I was awarded tenure in 2018.

In addition to doing mathematics and traveling, I enjoy photography.
