Many people might say that I am a Math Enthusiast, but that is quite a bit of an understatement. I am honored to be an ambassador of The Global Math Project headed by James Tanton. James writes the forward in the beautiful book Pi of Life: The Hidden Happiness of Mathematics and says, “Mathematics is the portal to the playground of the soul.” I agree with him so much and hope to be able to show “kids” of all ages how amazing mathematics can be. To quote the author of A Mathematician’s Lament Paul Lockhart, “The only thing I am interested in using mathematics for is to have a good time and help others do the same.”
