In his own words: "My research interests are in areas of Discrete Math. In particular I enjoy Graph Theory and Combinatorics. The great thing about these fields is that there are many problems that can easily be understood and researched by students. Since being here at Catawba College I have found myself working with colleagues in the Mathematics Department as well as the School of Business in many different areas of research.

I am the advisor to the Math Club here at Catawba and I enjoy working with students outside of the classroom who are interested in math. In the past few years Catawba has sent a team to compete in a Math Jeopardy contest at the Southeastern Regional meeting of the Mathematical Association of America. I also enjoy teaching math to students at all different levels of the curriculum here at Catawba College.

Personally, I enjoy working on my farm and raising and training Border Collies to herd sheep. I have competed in numerous sheep herding trials since I have been at Catawba and in 2006 I qualified to compete in the United States Border Collie Handlers' Association's National Finals in Klamath Falls, Oregon. I was not able to attend but I hope to qualify again in 2007 and attend the finals in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania."
