My self-summary
Born in Vancouver, Canada, raised in Los Angeles, on the move across the planet. Linguist, writer, musician, teacher.

I'm a massive nerd, particularly when it comes to anything relating to Linguistics, and may geek out at any time.

Moving to Georgia sometime around April/May.

I have Asperger's Syndrome, and place on what they call the "High Functioning" end of the Autism Spectrum. Interpret that however you wish.

I've got 99 problems, and if you add one more problem, that makes 100 problems, which is 10². It all makes sense now.
What I’m doing with my life
Linguistics, teaching, travel and Heavy Metal are my life. This is what I live for.

These days, for the next several years, I'll be assembling raw materials to write an Honourary Doctorate in Linguistics, and writing two series of novels. If you can help me with English, Russian, Finnish, Persian, Swedish or Spanish, let's definitely get in contact.

Generally, writing books and short story collections along with various articles and travel journalism.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

You should message me if
You enjoy Metal and find nerdiness attractive.

You're willing to learn and speak Sumerian with me and you want to get married and raise a family, and have children who will be the first Native Speakers of Sumerian to walk this earth in almost 5,000 years.
