Yes, that's me, laid low by a triumphant Adam Sandler.

I spent nine years as a professional actor before leaving the industry to pursue academic studies full time. My IMDB profile is here.

My acting career means I am one of a handful of people in the world with a defined Erdos-Bacon number. My number is 6, the same as Natalie Portman and John Nash.

Bacon Number:

Jared Van Snellenberg (2) -> Agent Cody Banks (2003) <-> Frankie Muniz (1) <-> My Dog Skip (2000) <- Kevin Bacon (0)

Erdos Number:

Jared Van Snellenberg (4) -> Evaluating the consistency and specificity of neuroimaging data using meta-analysis, NeuroImage (2009) <-> Martin A. Lindquist (3) <-> A generalization of the two-dimensional prolate spheroidal wave function method for nonrectilinear MRI data acquisition methods, IEEE Trans. Image Process. (2006) <-> Cun-Hui Zhang (2) <-> On optimality of bold play for primitive casinos in the presence of inflation, J. Appl. Probab. (2005) <-> Robert W. Chen (1) <-> Random walks on Z^n_2, J. Multivariate Anal. (1988) <- Paul Erdos (0)
