The author has been interested in math and technology for as long as he can remember. He has taught math at the high school level since 2001 at the public high schools of Illinois, including every class from Pre-Algebra through AP Calculus.
He has also coached academic teams at Morton, including the math team, WYSE team (Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering), and chess team. In recent years, his math teams have been particularly successful, putting together a run of four straight top 3 state finishes, highlighted by the 2012 Illinois State Championship.
In the summer of 2010, he launched Tech Powered Math, a site designed to assist teachers, students, and parents with information about math education technologies. The site rapidly grew in popularity, and by early 2011, Tech Powered Math was cited as a source by both Engadget and CNET for his story on the release of the TI-Nspire CX, Texas Instruments' first color graphing calculator.
His interests include a variety of technologies. He is the rare mobile electronics aficionado who enjoys both Android and iOS and is the proud owner of both a Samsung Galaxy S2 and an iPad 2.
