An amateur is someone who knows the right way to do something.

A master is someone who knows all the wrong ways.

I am a mathematician, an educator, and a programmer. I worked as a web developer from 2007 until 2014. I took a sabbatical from tech to teach mathematics and programming. I am currently working as a software developer doing machine vision for a startup in Scottsdale.

I am a proponent of functional programming. I am interested in dependent types as well as type theory as a foundation in mathematics. I am a member of Functional First Phoenix.

I remember a day in elementary school when I looked down at my calculator and thought to myself, "I already know how to plus, minus, times, and divide. All I need to learn now is x^y, sin, cos, tan, and √ and I'll know all of mathematics." I later learned I was mistaken.
