I studied computer science in undergrad, but grad school taught me that I did not love programming with my whole heart. I prefer to explore, discover and communicate patterns about the world. I came to Virginia Tech to earn my graduate degree in statistics and create opportunities to do those things.
I have 6 years of teaching assistant experience at the undergraduate and graduate levels (Oral Roberts, Baylor, Virginia Tech), which include grading, tutoring, and holding available office hours. My personal passion for learning extends beyond any single topic, and I wore many hats at an after school tutoring center (Huntington in Tulsa, OK). My roles included subject instruction for students kindergarten through college age, ACT/SAT quantitative preparation, and initial diagnostic & assessment of incoming students.
I enjoy meeting new people, educating them about their possibilities and raising awareness about their self-imposed limits.
I live with my wife and my dog outside the city limits of Christiansburg. I work full time at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute as a research analyst.
