I was born in Baltimore, Maryland and raised in Toledo, Ohio.  After graduating from John Carroll University with BS and MS degrees and serving in the military, I recieved the Ph.D degree from the University of Maryland. Before coming to the University of Tennessee, I spent three years at the University of South Florida.

Research leaves have been spent at Universitat Karlsruhe (Germany) in 1985 and Cornell University in 1988 and 1992. In addition, I have participated in conferences recently in Glasgow, Scotland in 1990, Zurich, Switzerland in 1994, Athens, Greece in 1996, and Catania, Sicily in 2000.

As a faculty member at UTK, I have served on numerous department, college, and university committees and taught classes mostly in analysis, i.e., calculus, advanced calculus, analytical applied mathematics, ordinary and partial differential equations at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
