Mathematics

When I moved to Seattle, I started teaching as an adjunct instructor at several different schools in the greater Seattle Area. In 2018, I got tenure at Shoreline Community College. This is my teaching page with links to class resources.

To earn my M.S. at Oregon State University, I wrote an expository paper under the advisement of Topologist ::Dr. Dennis Garity:: about Cantor Sets and Antoine's Necklace.

A piece of sheet music is two-dimensional. A cigar box guitar is three-dimensional. Music is multi-dimensional. What about the space between? A fractal is an idea with a fractional dimension.

This is a mathematical introduction to fractals.

Mathematics and Music

This is a physical and mathematical description and exploration of sound and music.

Fractal Music

A piece of sheet music is two-dimensional. A cigar box guitar is three-dimensional. Music is multi-dimensional. What about the space between? A fractal is an idea with a fractional dimension.

This is a piece of music I wrote inspired by fractal forms.

A trip to the ::Museum of Mathematics:: inspired this exploration into the shape of triads.

Mathematics and Making

Inspired by a ::topology book about how to draw surfaces::, I've used polymer clay to make 3d-models of complicated shapes.

A piece of sheet music is two-dimensional. A cigar box guitar is three-dimensional. Music is multi-dimensional. What about the space between? A fractal is an idea with a fractional dimension.

These are things I've made that have been inspired by fractals.

Inspired by a Northwest Artist ::Nikki McClure::, I've created several works by cutting patterns out of a sheet of paper. Here are the ones that come from mathematical ideas.
