LIFE IS A JOURNEY...
ENJOY THE RIDE...
am one of the most recent addition to the ranks of the full-time mathematics
faculty here at Colorado Mountain College. Though I have just arrived at CMC, as you can see, I’ve taught at
several different colleges and Universities, and I also work as an editor on
several mathematics textbooks.
you take my classes in mathematics you will find that I have a great love for
the subject, and take the content quite seriously. My goals are to challenge students with a
high-quality course that pushes them to discover the limits of their skill, to
prepare them to move forward in their academic careers with a solid base of
knowledge, and to instill within them an unwavering attention to detail and a
zeal for precision.
received my Master of Science degree in Pure Mathematics from Lehigh University,
in Pennsylvania, back in 1992. Circumstances got in the way of the completion of my PhD, but I’ve
always planned on returning to that task. One
of my personal education hopes is to be able to (eventually) go to Law School…
it took me till I was in my 40s, but now I know what I want to be when I grow
up… a lawyer!

You might think that all math professors are staid academics who have lived their entire life behind a math book… if that’s the case, then you’ll find that I’m not like that at all.
I left high school early and joined the US Navy, hoping to “see the world.” After a tour of duty aboard the USS Spartanburg County, with the US Sixth Fleet assigned to the Middle East, I left the service, and worked for several years as a steel cutter and welder, hoping to figure out what I wanted to do with my life…
I can empathize with those students who “hated” high school, because I did, as well… but I can tell you from experience that education truly is “the way."
