I'm a bit of a nomad. I was born in New Jersey. I made a huge circle around the East Coast of the United States and lived in Alabama, Georgia, and Connecticut before returning to New Jersey. However, I consider myself a New Jerseyan through and through.
I attended Rutgers University-New Brunswick from 2015 to 2021 and earned my B.A. in Linguistics with minors in Psychology and Cognitive Science. I briefly attended Bergen Community College from 2016 to 2018. I'm currently working towards my Ph.D. in Linguistics at the University of Maryland-College Park.
If I weren't a linguist, I would either be a historian or meteorologist. In my free time, I like to watch The Weather Channel, read up on whatever historical topic interests me at the moment, and hang out with my two cats, Pop and Misha.
