Biography
I was born in Robbinsdale, Minnesota, and hence am a Minnesota Vikings fan. My family moved to Utah shortly after I was born and I was raised mostly in Salt Lake and the Orem/Provo area. As a child I enjoyed any game or sport that I could get people to play with me. Although I was a decent student, I didn't like attending school and barely graduated from high school.

I went to college at Brigham Young University--Hawaii, where I majored in Mathematics. After my freshman year, I took two years off to do a voluntary mission for my church. Upon returning to BYU-Hawaii, I met my wife, YiChou, who is from Taiwan, and we were married shortly after.

Upon graduation, I was accepted to Purdue University where I studied Statistics. I finished a Master's degree and worked on a PHD for a year and a half but did not complete it. During my undergraduate and graduate work we started a family and now have five children--Girl, Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl!

I now am employed by the Department of Statistics here at Purdue University as a Continuing Lecturer. I enjoy teaching and can see myself doing it for many years. We enjoy living in West Lafayette and we feel that the community is a great place to raise our family.
