A former high school maths teacher, he now shares mathematics via YouTube videos, stand-up comedy, and books.

Author's Comment: “…Humans are not naturally good at mathematics…everyone thinks if they’re not naturally good at math, then it’s not for them; but the crazy thing is, everyone finds math difficult, and the people who are into math are not the ones who just find it easy, they’re the ones that enjoy the fact that it’s difficult.”
