About Us

BS in physics. Insurance and Banking career. Current area of research is mathematical applications for social phenomena.

I grew up traveling in a military family, while spending summers on my grandparent’s central Iowa farm and I have retired in Grinnell, Iowa just six miles from my great great grandparents settled after arriving from Norway.

After a year of teaching high school physics most of my career was spent in the insurance and financial services sector, retiring from Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in West Des Moines in 2011.  Whether working in education, customer service, sales or management, I have always been amazed by what complex puzzling beings we are, how we are motivated, the funny ways we think about the world and how we got this way.  So many questions for which I still don’t have answers to share.

But I can share the question if I dare to ask.
