About Me

I am originally from Mississippi, and got my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics from the University of Southern Mississippi. I currently live in New Orleans, where I will get a Ph.D. in mathematics this spring.

I like creating and playing games, including board games, card games, and video games.

I also like constructing and solving crossword puzzles. I have had two crosswords published in The Los Angeles Times and one published in Games World of Puzzles magazine.
