Wayne began his pursuit of higher education, after being out of high school for fourteen years, by participating in massive open online courses known as MOOCs which gave him the necessary preparation for the rigors of college. He founded the Humanist Society of Kent State University because he knew that there was a large segment of the KSU student body who's philosophical and religious (or lack thereof) beliefs were not represented by a student organization. His interests include chess, playing guitar, and discovering the deep insights of mathematics. As a mathematician, he hopes to find solutions to problems that will improve the human condition. He is profoundly concerned about convincing the next generation of students of the fundamental importance of learning mathematics and programming as gateways to their participation in the global information society.
