Subject: [MC4D] Introductions!
Date: Tue, 28 Jun 2016 04:09:56 +0000

Just as Chandler introduced himself I figured we could use this email
thread for further introductions.

My name is Ashton I hail from California USA. My education includes
Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Nevada Reno, and a
Masters in Business Administration from the University of Colorado, Denver.
I love using the problem solving of computer science to solve business
questions. I had seen the 3^4 online a few years ago, but had thought it
would be beyond my level of solving. That was until I saw Mathologer’s
videos breaking down how to solve any twisty puzzle.

I am glad to see that there are about 3 people finishing the 4D cube puzzle
every day now, compared to the previous average of 6 per year. I want to
encourage those who have just finished and are sitting quietly in this
group to use this email thread to introduce themselves. Groups like this
can be great for networking. You can find me on LinkedIn. If anyone has
questions about business math I am always looking for a question to
research and help others when I can.
