About Me
We are two mathematics professors at Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges on Philadelphia's fabled Main Line. We love our warm and spacious home because we enjoy frequenting Center City, but also the convenience of local shops and eateries, walking to work, and living in a peaceful, friendly neighborhood. It will be great knowing that someone else gets to enjoy it just as much while we are on our sabbatical leave!
