This is what I spend most of my spare time with, Ballroom Dancing. A while ago, I was volunteered to be the Oklahoma State Coordinator for USA Dance YCN, the USA Dance Youth and College Network. My job there is to act as a liaison between School, College, and University Dance Clubs -- all kinds of partner dancing, not just Ballroom -- and YCN, and promote the formation of new clubs. So, if you know of any club or would like to start one, please send me email! Oh, and I'm also the Faculty Advisor of the Sooner Ballroom Dance Club here at OU.
I'm a Research Scientist and Adjunct Professor at the University of Oklahoma in High Energy Physics and IT, working on the ATLAS experiment at CERN outside Geneva, Switzerland, and the D0 experiment at Fermilab outside of Chicago. My current projects are Grid and High Performance/Throughput Computing, in particular the OU ATLAS Grid and Tier 2 Center Effort, the OU D0 and DOSAR Grid Effort, and OSCER, the OU Supercomputing Center for Education & Research. I am also the Grid Computing Coordinator of the Oklahoma Center for High Energy Physics, OCHEP, as well as the Associate Director for Remote and Heterogeneous Computing at OSCER.
I was a graduate student in High Energy Physics at The University at Albany, State University of New York, and spent some time at Wilson Lab, Cornell University.
Before that, I did my undergrad at the Bayerische Julius-Maximilians-Universitaet Wuerzburg in southern Germany.
And even earlier, I went to High School at the Reichsstadt-Gymnasium in Rothenburg o.d.Tauber.
And speaking of the beautiful Rothenburg ob der Tauber, why don't you visit my hometown! Here or here or here. Three web sites for such a little town, isn't that something! And there are more pictures of Rothenburg on this site and interesting articles here.
Here are some of my favorite links!
