Biography: Colm Mulcahy is a professor of mathematics at Spelman College, in Atlanta, where he has taught since 1988. He's currently visiting American University in Washington, D.C. Over the last decade, he has been at the forefront of publishing new mathemagical principles and effects for cards, particularly in his long-running bimonthly Card Colm column for the MAA. Some of his card effects have been featured in The New York Times Numberplay blog. His book Mathematical Card Magic: Fifty-Two New Effects was published by AK Peters/CRC Press in 2013.
