Beyond teaching, I'm involved in a variety of other educational endeavours.
 Iowa 4H Youth Conference 2014: Mathematical Card Magic 
Presenting "Separation of Points, the Quotient Topology, and the Weak Topology" at BUGCAT 2011.  My research is primarily in analysis (usually complex or functional), and I'm quite fond of topology. One field where these two topics blend beautifully is that of Banach algebras, and I usually study Banach algebras of continuous functions. Here is a list of my publications: Publication List (as of 8/16/2014) Speaking of publications, my Erdős number is 4. 
Currently, I am a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at Iowa State University. I am originally from Long Island, NY; in particular, I am from West Islip (pronouced icelip, not islip). I attended Clarkson University, where I earned my B.S. in 2008, and my M.S. (2010) and Ph. D. (2012) under Dr. Aaron Luttman. My nonmathematical interests include:
