Born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA, in 1953. Educated at Kalamazoo College (BA, 1974) and the University of Michigan (PhD, mathematics, 1979). I am married, have three grown children, and live in Columbus, Ohio.
I don't have time to keep up with all the things I'm interested in, which include
- technical subjects
- religion and philosophy
- building a better life for as many people as possible
- why people behave the way they do
- patterns of destructive individual and institutional behavior that I resist as best I can
Please note that the presence of a topic on this list means that I'm interested in it, not that I claim to know something about it. I do know a little bit about a few things.
