I am a high school math teacher who looks to incorporate creative and artistic elements into the mathematical experiences of my students. I have been inspired by Bridges to bring mathematical art to my students, and to bring them to mathematical art.

I enjoy sharing and communicating mathematics through photography. I look to capture and convey the mathematics of our everyday experiences, as well as find and portray mathematical beauty in the world. I find photography to be an effective means for increasing student awareness of mathematics, and it can also inspire them to see and interact with the mathematics all around them.

I enjoy capturing objects and their projections. Here the sun has turned a rectangle into two triangles that conveniently meet along a natural axis.
