Garth Sundem

I work at the intersection of science and humor, with a background including a growing list of bestselling books, a Magna Cum Laude pre-med/music degree from Cornell University, and math-for-hire for mobile app and tech companies. In addition to bookstores and conferences, you may have seen me on the Science Channel where I'm a frequent onscreen contributor or in periodicals including The New York Times, Esquire, Wired, and Congressional Quarterly.

I grew up on Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, where my dad—a former President of the American Accounting Association—taught for 34 years in the UW business school. Now, I live in Boulder, Colorado with my wife, two small kids, one large and one small labrador.
