Web pages of some of my friends.

I met John Black at the Continental Open Chess tournament in April of 1993. Since then he has become one of my best friends. We've studied chess together, went on long walks and hikes, went white-water rafting, and gotten stuck on the side of halfdome in Yosemite Park. He is currently a professor of computer science at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He is one of the few people in the world that can instantly tell you what the 50th digit in the decimal expansion of pi is: just ask him!

Don Lawrence was a fellow graduate student at Berkeley. We have done many things together, including playing softball, bowling (he witnessed my lifetime high game of 243), gaming, an truly understanding the phrase, "birds of prey know they're cool".

I first met Juan Migliore via e-mail during the summer of 1994 while I was writing my first paper. I wasn't to meet him in person until 1997 in Barcelona, and then I saw quite a bit of him while at the University of Notre Dame (where he is a professor of mathematics). I've played soccer and softball with Juan, as well as doing some mathematics, going to Notre Dame football games, and sharing some birthday parties.

Frederico Xavier is not just "The man", but "The man behind the man". I met him while I was at the University of Notre Dame - we taught a calculus course together and played some soccer together. Fred is great to work with as a mathematician - we wrote a paper together which I consider to be one of my most fun collaborations.
