Background Information

Education:  I received my B.S. degree in Mathematics (Cum Laude and Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honors Society) in 1993 from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Fredonia.  I began my graduate work in Mathematics at Bowling Green State University in Ohio but decided to take some time off to study Philosophy.  After earning a B.A. degree in Philosophy (Department Scholar Award, Alpha Chi National Honors Society) in 1996 from SUNY Brockport and doing a little graduate work in Philosophy, I completed my M.A. degree in Mathematics from SUNY Brockport in 1999.
