Life-long fascination with linguistics—from 4th grade to college, and beyond. Violinist (also since 4th grade). Guitarist (vaguely), and erstwhile a cappellist. Polymathic dilettante. Tangentialist (!).
After some fun in glorious Northern Arizona, returned to the Northeast five years ago. A wealth of strong connections here—family, friends, Yale & Columbia alum.
Vegetarian for about 25 years—health, compassion, clean living great motivators for me.
