The electron magnetic moment anomaly is conventionally derived from the fine structure constant using a complex formula requiring over 13,000 evaluations. However, the charge of the electron is an important parameter of the Standard Model and could provide an enhanced basis for the derivation of the electron magnetic moment anomaly. This paper uses a geometric model to reformulate the equation for the electron’s charge, this is then used to determine a more accurate value for the electron magnetic moment anomaly from first geometric principles. This enhanced derivation uses a single evaluation, using a concise mathematical equation based on the natural log e^pi. This geometric model will lead to further work to theoretically improve the understanding of the electron.
