Former physicist, now automated tester in I.T. and part time mathematical recreationalist. I'm mostly interested in sequences that use simple mathematics and are easy to understand but show complicated/unpredictable behavior as they grow. I'm also interested in sequences that produce nice looking graphs and/or images!

One day I watched the Numberphile 'Trapped Knight' YouTube video and thought 'I'd like to reproduce that!'. I found a little list of numbers that I thought others may enjoy, and that was the start of my OEIS/sequence life. I had no idea such a little thing would eventually have me in communication with such luminaries as Neil S., and eventually lead me to becoming an OEIS associate editor. So thanks to Numberphile, Trapped Knights, and Neil! :-)
