Sometimes it's so hard to find what it is I'm trying to say. People might think you can turn
creativity on and off, but its not like that. It just kinda comes out: a mash up of all these things you collect
in your mind. You never know when it's gonna happen. But when it does, it's like magic. It's just that
simple. And it's just that hard.

I joined the math and statistics department at Mount Holyoke College this past summer. For the previous 13 years, I was a professor in mathematics at Grinnell College. My research is primarily in computational math, particularly related to questions in algebra, number theory, and geometry. Currently I work on questions of how Jacobian varieties decompose,
and group actions on Riemann surfaces.
