WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
"Glen is extremely knowledgeable and is expertly prepared to explain how to derive the answers and what the mathematical principals are behind them."
A personal note from Glen
Hello, I’m Glen Meyer, an educator, consultant, writer, and philosopher living and working in Austin, Texas. Throughout my life I have discovered and rediscovered mathematics, working through its complexities and frustrations to find its puzzles, depths, surprises, and enticements, but also encountering its underside, its entanglements with power and systems of domination.
My goal here is to share and explore these discoveries and encounters with others through writing and teaching. Please feel free to have a look around and reach out.
I grew up in the Midwest and have an undergraduate degree in mathematics from the University of Iowa and a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Minnesota (with a specialization in the philosophy of science, including a minor in the studies of science and technology). I have worked in a variety of occupations: as both a high school teacher and a college professor, in artificial intelligence (as an ontologist, developing ontologies and designing inference paths), and, more recently, as a ratemaking property and casualty insurance actuary, both in private industry and in rate regulation. A little more than a year ago I left this last occupation to return to my true passions: teaching and writing.
I really am a client’s best kept secret. Learn more about me and all the services I offer.
