Personal

 

Married (since 1986)

4 beautiful, incredible children

 

While not doing mathematics my life is centered on my wife and four children. However, when I have the time, I enjoy my close friends, judo, baseball, Sabermetrics, collecting R&L cereal premiums, science fiction (notably The Prisoner) and classic horror (check out Svengoolie), listening to The Blues, public radio, cooking and tending my fruit tree orchard.
