About me: I love math, of course, and I particularly enjoy statistics where your imagination can meld with the real and practical world by using data to support (or contradict) your hypotheses. In addition to math, I love a lot of technology and I have many obsessions. My biggest obsession is Harry Potter, but I also love geeky, obsessive shows like
- Lost (episode titles alone make the show worth watching),
- Battlestar Galactica (gotta love Gaius),
- Firefly (pure writing genius), and
- The IT Crowd (Roy's t-shirts are the best).
I love children's literature like Harry Potter, of course, as well as
- Anne of Green Gables (named our firstborn for this kindred spirit),
- Narnia (brilliantly told), and
- Alice (written by a mathematician).
I applied to be a student of Lost University, but it turns out I am not very good. Even though I love the show, the devil is in the details. The LU guys are so sweet, though, that they let me have a card despite my loss of Lost trivia!
I bet you guessed that this isn't a current image of me, didn't you? The picture is actually of Emma, my youngest, when she was about 1.2 years old.
