I am from a mid-size town in Illinois called Normal. Yes, that it is what it is called. I have heard all the normal jokes. I have normal friends, normal neighbors, a normal family, in fact I went to Normal University High School. I did my undergraduate at Brigham Young University. From 2010 to 2012, I took a two year break to be a volunteer representative for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Carlsbad, California. I then finished my undergraduate in Applied Mathematics in 2015. I married my lovely wife Kenzie in 2016. I am currently studying to get a PhD in Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
