About Me

I was born in York, PA and spent my childhood in Bala Cynwyd, PA, just outside of Philadelphia. I graduated from Johns Hopkins in 1999 with a degree in Physics, and got my PhD at Penn State University in 2005. I live in Baltimore with my wife and two children and enjoy writing, volleyball, and reading.
