I've been on the road for most of 2013, with a focus on organic farming via WWOOF (World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms). See for yourself! Also, if we met on the road and I haven't emailed you yet, please write and say hi!
It wasn't until recently that I considered myself somewhat of a writer: most of the stuff that I write never even sees the light of day, and the stuff that does usually goes bad pretty quickly.
And speaking of moldy stuff, I've had a long-ish history of blogging, going all the way back to high school when I would lament about emo things on livejournal. I'd like to think that things are better these days, but you never know.
Finally, while I traveled in 2013, I sent out a newsletter as a way to keep in touch with friends in addition to exploring email as a medium for long-form writing. There's not much happening today, but you are free to subscribe anyway as long as you're not counting on me to relieve your lonely inbox!
Even though Linguistics isn't about learning as many foreign languages as you can, it was my early exposure to various languages that ultimately sparked my interest in the field. I'm always interested in Language Exchanges, so let me know if we are a mutual match! (Table below is shown in descending order of proficiency)
And despite 99.999999% of the world being apathetic, I've made available my undergraduate honors thesis because I think it was actually pretty decent work.
To whet your appetite, the title is "Potentially Useful, Momentously Difficult: Inferring the Temporal Dimension of Sentence Comprehension Difficulty with Potential Functions and Second Order Measurements." Can't wait to read it now, huh?Warning: A background in computational linguistics is probably required!

… And this site?
This website is statically compiled by hakyll, and the stack looks roughly like (with many thanks to their respective authors/maintainers!)
I'm currently not taking on any new work, so there is no point in showing off old work. To get a sense of my design aesthetic, look no further than the website you are currently viewing. Featured prominently in this design are things that I like, such as:
- Laid-back color themes, often pastel-based
- Custom illustrated artwork
- Juxtaposition of complementary fonts
- Logical organization of content
If for some reason you're just dying for a website and you're about to make me an offer I can't refuse, then email is the best way to broach the subject.

They contain a level of detail intended only for those who already know a little about me. Answer the questions below with one word each to proceed. If you don't know the answers but think you should, maybe it's time for us to catch up? ;)

These sections are even more personal, and even less likely to be associated with me (yet they are or have been!). To unlock them, you must know some really specific details about me. Again, just one-word answers.
