Born in Okinawa, Japan, to a military family on Sept. 28 1962, Green lived abroad for many years until settling in Riverside, Calif. He graduated from Riverside Polytechnic High School in 1980 and obtained his Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in 1985 and his Masters in 1990 from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
