My favorite sport is soccer (aka football), and my favorite teams are the US Men's National Team and Liverpool (European Champions 1977,78,81,84, and 2005) and current FA Cup holder.

When you walk through a storm,
Hold your head up high,
And don't be afraid of the dark,
At the end of a storm, there's a golden sky,
And the sweet silver song of a lark.

Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown...

Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone...

Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone...

Also, I love cats (in case you couldn't tell). Check out the the Animal Rescue Site. Pictures of Fluffy and Armand to follow eventually. Armand is my sister's cat who now lives with my mom in Texas as my sister is studying at the University of Aberdeen, yes the one in Scotland. Here is her website, please visit,

I'm currently a grad student at OU working on my PhD in Mathematics in the area of Representations of Modular Forms under the advisement of Dr. Ralf Schmidt, a very cool guy and not just because I have to say it either!!!

This Spring semester I'm taking three courses: a reading course in Modular Forms and Representations and two lecture courses one in Algebras and Representations and one in Algebraic Groups. Also, I am coordinating the Student Algebra Seminar.
In case you haven't guessed from the above quote, my favorite band is Pink Floyd,
Pink Floyd
but I also like Black Sabbath, Rush, Led Zeppelin, Goldfrapp, Miles Davis, Debussy, J.S. Bach, and the Mahavishnu Orchestra just to name a few.

Laughs at the Birthday dinner

Vera likes her tea, but Antara seems ambivalent

Antara and Vera seemed entertained. Is it Brandon or Tara?

I think they're getting annoyed with all my picture taking ;-)
