...I love being able to work with students and clients to help them better understand mathematics. The moment when a challenging problem becomes a "no-brainer" is the highlight of my week. That is the energy that I bring to my sessions.

...My mother was a math teacher, and inspired and challenged me at an early age. In my 43-year career with NASA, I developed a broad range of technical skills, with emphasis on physics, engineering, and the supporting math. Outside of my work, I have always had relevant hobbies--ranging from math puzzles to the repair of antique radios.

During the majority of my summers I have worked at an overnight camp called Camp Airy, with the 11-13 year old range of campers. Before college, I worked at my local Hebrew school and aided the first grade class for 5 years.
