My self-summary
I'm a computational linguist and a bit of a world traveller.

I am restless, nice, and intense
What I’m doing with my life
I've got an MS in Arabic from Georgetown. I also do RnD for a software company in Arlington, and some linguistic translation and consulting on the side. I eventually want to get a PhD in Semitic Languages. Not for any professional reason, I just want it. So that's the asnwer that you get at parties - what do you do? Such an American question.
I’m really good at
Languages. I love them, and I can learn one in a matter of months. I learned Spanish when I was a kid, and from there learned a few other Romance Languages. I started studying Arabic a while ago, but I kept at it up until now. While doing Arabic, I added a few other languages - Persian and Turkish. I lived in China for two years, so I speak Chinese pretty well. Last year I taught myself to read Urdu.

What else am I good at? I'm a good teacher, or so my students tell me. I do an evil karaoke Michael Jackson and Prince - just close your eyes, and dig if you will the picture. I've done Arabic voice overs for the History Channel, so if you see a documentary about terrorists, that's probably me. I like computer programming, esp machine learning and artificial intelligence, but wouldn't say I'm necessarily good at it.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I also like racketball and long walks on the beach. No, just kidding. I can't stand racketball. Actually, I've never played it, but it seems like something a bit too yuppie-ish for my tastes. What do I like? I abs positively love to travel, and I love world cuisine, esp Asian - Chinese and Vietnamese especially. I love studying languages] for fun, the more obscure and useless the better. I love Classical music - especially Mozart - I love the man, and everything he's written, and this isn't a generic liking. I love to read, pretty much everything. My favorite movie is The Big Lubowsky. Napoleon Dynamirte follows, along w/ a whole buncha others I can't remember right now. I like TV shows more - West Wing, Upstairs, Downstairs, Strangers with Candy, Sex in the City, and recently, Firefly, although I didn't like the movie, Serenity, they made abt it at all. It's really the only scifi I take to.
The six things I could never do without
(a) My Sidekick phone - it carries a lot of sentimental value. (b) Hans Wehr's Arabic Dictionary - 10 years old and still going. (c) Wright's Arabic Grammar. (d) coffee
