I was born in Georgia sometime during the Eisenhower administration. As an Air Force ``brat", I grew up all over the U.S., including Hawaii, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Georgia. A little later in life I added Massachusetts, Ohio, Newfoundland (Canada) and North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) to the places I've lived. (Maryland is the first state in which I've stayed longer than 5 years.) You can consult my C.V. for the mundane details of my education and career. You can also find out about my Erdös number , read a short biography of my mathematical hero, or check out my mathematical ancestry.
You can get some idea of my interests by looking at my cool links. Besides reading, I enjoy hiking, backpacking, running, and bicycling.
