I attended public schools and in 7th grade found that I could excel beyond my grade level in math. After H.S. graduation I joined the military as an electronics technician, after which, I mainly did construction work, but perceived a “calling” to do something that had more effect on the world. After a failed spiritual attempt to find that calling, in a moment of crisis in 1994, I suddenly became obsessed with experimenting with mathematics. I first described the MRB constant (A037077) in 1999, and I find that I become very depressed when I am not actively pursuing my math hobby, so I spend all of my free time doing, writing or at least thinking about it.
