I am a Brainstormer, Educator/Teacher, Environmentalist, Parent, Performer, Philanthropist and Scientist who is passionate about the power of the human mind, especially with regards to mathematics and the broader sciences.

I hunt monster prime numbers. There is no largest prime number. The primes keep going infinitely. But the largest prime number we've yet discovered, if printed out as a novel, would be about 6,000 pages long - and we know it is prime as surely as we know that the number 7 is prime. i think that is truly beautiful.

Talk to me about anything about which you are truly passionate. i'll let you know if i'm bored
