I was born in Sunnyvale, California in 1979 and lived there until I went to college at UC Santa Cruz in 1996. I spent the next 10 years attaining various degrees and holding classes during the semi-quarterly campus strikes. A marriage, a child and a research position at the University in Aberdeen followed. Two years later, I came back to the USA (with an extra ε in tow) and a Visiting Assistant Professor position at Suffolk University in Boston. The position became tenure-track in 2009. In July 2010, we welcomed ε3 to the family. On a related note, I now drive a minivan. In February 2012, I accepted a tenure-track position at California State University Fullerton. I spend most of my free time coaching Little League baseball. With any luck, I will get tenure and a promotion to associate professor sometime this summer.
