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.
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.

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.
