I am grew up in Shawnee, Oklahoma.  During my childhood I had several very influential teachers and mentors who pushed me in my love for mathematics and the social sciences.  This led me to studying political science with a desire to be a professor.  When I am not working, I am a nerd at heart.  With a deep passion for science fiction and fantasy.  Since the pandemic, I have started being a Game Master for my friends as we play Dungeons and Dragons virtually.  These interests helped drive me with a constant desire to learn and expand my understanding of the world, but with an understanding that some things I will never truly be able to understand.
