Graduate assistant, Department of Mathematics
I hail from Omaha, Nebraska, a thriving metropolis that is a long drive away from State College. I have been with the department as a graduate assistant since August 2010, pursuing the PhD degree in mathematics.
Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, Creighton University, May 2010. Majors in mathematics and Classical languages, minor in mathematical logic.
Creighton Preparatory School, May 2006.
Math 018 (fall 2011, spring 2012)
Math 041: Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry (summer 2012)
Math 111: Techniques of Calculus II (fall 2012)
Math 230: Calculus and Vector Analysis (spring 2012)
Cool people I've met:
Pulitzer and Tony Awards winning playwright Edward Albee, who was eating a peanut butter sandwich
Pulitzer finalist and Tony Award nominee Arthur Kopit, who was eating pizza
Drummer Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem, who was following Al Doyle
Nobel laureate John Nash, who was sad that there were no more cookies left
Grammy and Emmy Awards winning comedian Bob Newhart, who looked rather tired (I didn't blame him)
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts, who had just bought a croissant
1972 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Rodgers, who told me not to drugs
Dan Savage. I think I made him uneasy.
It's also very possible that a paparazzo once took a picture of me accidentally bumping into Tony Award nominee Josh Gad, but I haven't been able to verify this.
