About meI’m a linguist (degree from KU) and general lover of words. I’m proficient in and/or familiar with a handful of languages. I read a great deal, and I write, mostly poetry. I adore music, food/cooking, and running. I’m non-religious, verging on anti-religious. Altogether, I'm an unusual mix of light and dark, unconventional and traditional. You can’t fit me in a nutshell, which is a shame, because I bet it’s quite peaceful in there.

About my libraryPoetry is a mainstay. I enjoy unusual syntax and punctuation. (e. e. cummings lights up my life.) My last few years have been spent on mostly non-fiction, and I’m trying to return to fiction-reading. I have a thing for Russian literature. I love anything that is beautiful enough to make me cry. (Lolita, I’m looking at you.)

Some favorites: Rice, Plath, Cummings, Shakespeare, Dickinson, Lorca, Dostoevsky, Nabokov, Dawkins, Pinker, Nietzsche, Voltaire, Camus, Orwell, Burgess, Fitzgerald.
