I am a mathematics teacher, husband, father, and one who really enjoys etymology. In college I took a class on the History of the English Language for fun (I didn't have the pre-requisites, so it was very hard) and I helped my mother with her linguistics homework. I'm co-authoring a college-level calculus textbook, and have co-authored a science fiction novel (looking for a publisher!) and am half-way through the sequel (on hiatus while we finish the textbook).

I hope none of this comes across as bragging (if it does, someone say something please!). I simply wanted to share my background and my reasons for wanting to participate on this site.
