I've been taught a thing or two along the way.

Georgia State University

MA. Computational Linguistics – Dec 21, 2011

I studied phonetics and phonological system analysis, corpus and computational linguistics, as well as langauge acquistion. I attended Georgia State with the intention to focus on computational approaches to language analysis, but ultimately emphasized in phonetics. I left Georgia State before completing my masters degree and do not currently have plans to complete the degree; though, I am continually involved in advancing the field of phonetics, computational speech and language analysis, and linguistics.

Brigham Young University

BA, Lingustics | Czech and French language Minors – Aug 2011

The Brigham Young University Linguistics Department is the largest in the United States and is a leader in corpus and phonological linguistics. My coursework involved a wide range of core linguistics classes, though I spent a good deal of extra time participating in natural language processing, phonetic, and morphological research.

More about me

"Ramid'o vis mixtu pal'ma, vis'visadoqvin vias quopuer to." Dyesh Henge


I have a wonderful (on all days) wife and three great (on most days) kids. I love:

(in no particular order)
• Biking • The South
• Reading • Javascript
• Kayaking • Weightlifting
• Traveling • Playing violin and viola
• Programming • Fetty Wap and 90's grunge
• Classical music • Helping and serving people
• Orange cream soda • Studying less-common languages

I am a linguist and web developer. I am responsible for a few biofeedback mobile apps and for helping some people learn how to pronounce new sounds. I am a phonetician and am keenly interested in speech technologies. I am a leading expert in electropalatography and have helped simplify the learning curve to help speech therapists and parents do better articulation therapy. I do speak a few languages, but I like to think that keep an academic interest in language diversity and that I am not just a language enthusiast that tries to learn any language I come across...but it's not true. I just like learning languages.

I'm continually working to improve my software and web development skills. I am a big fan of JavaScript and primarily develop for the web to create and consume RESTful apis. I have worked on native mobile platforms, but now use React-Native and Ionic to create mobile apps. I find socket-based databases and three-way data binding exciting. I love the ubiquity and ever improving functionality of JavaScript. I have used other languages as needed, including Objective-C, Swift, Python, and C++.
