I'm a dialectologist. I've loved both maps and pronunciation my whole life and have been lucky enough to get into the field where I get to think about both professionally—if only I could find a tenure-track job.
I'm from Massachusetts. I moved to Philly almost nine years ago, and I'm still getting used to it, but it's been slowly growing on me all along.
I'm a performer. It's hard to find time to actually get on stage now, but you can always find opportunities to perform in some way, even just among friends. I'm a better actor than I am a singer, but I like singing more.
I'm a geek; I'm a puzzle solver; I'm an unexpected extrovert; I'm a distributor of peppermints.
