What do you do best?

I name out aloud each one of hundreds of students on the first day of class, during class, without the aid of nametags.

What makes you the best?

I’m not the best at anything. What makes my first class day recollection of student names the best skill I have is the application of techniques I learned from a memory course I took when I was nine years old.  The course used many of the memory palace techniques now commonly found in books like “Moonwalking with Einstein” and “A Sheep Falls out of a Tree”. I use photos of the students as the basis for the remembering the names.

What are your aspirations?

To be beneficially present

Biggest Success?

Finding a viable Ph.D. dissertation topic

Most Challenging Moment?

Disastrous teaching ratings the first time I taught MBAs at the University of Texas at Austin
