- Born to be a square on 9-16-64, I married prime on 7-18-87 (71887 is prime). My wife Martha homeschooled our children for 17 years. Our youngest daughter, Tiffany, is a Union student. Our daughter Patricia is a Union graduate, as is our son Matthew, who recently finished his PhD in mathematics at LSU and is now on a postdoctoral appointment at CIMAT. We worship at Church at the Village. My hobbies are spending time with family, playing golf, reading, and watching baseball, golf, and football. My professional interests are varied, but currently my passions are teaching calculus using infinitesimals and teaching using the flipped classroom.
