I strive to maintain a balance between my job and the rest of my life.  Outside of work I have several current interests.


My wife is Dr. Enid Steinbart who works as the Director of Advising and Assessment in the Georgia Tech School of Math.  We are proud parents of three awesome young women Hannah, Natalie and Monica.  We also have an old dog Madison and a mean cat Bo.  Here’s some faces to go with the names:

One (lazy) way to tell our story is to post our archive of annual holiday letters.

Comedy and Improv

Not exactly a typical hobby for a mathematics professor and college administrator, but believe me, it can be just as challenging!  I’ve been performing stand up and improv comedy since the 1980’s. Here’s a Story Collider podcast where I talk a little bit about that part of my life.

I’ve also spend some time creating April Fool’s Jokes that occasionally get a little attention.

The Maker Movement

I am very involved in the maker movement, and I co-founded a successful community makerspace, Decatur Makers, located in downtown Decatur. I’m also on the board of the Southeast Makers Alliance and have been involved as a co-producer of Maker Faire Atlanta since 2014.
