Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and raised in California, where I did undergraduate work in English. Once aspired to be a poet, but was seduced by science. Received a BA in Anthropology and a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Hawaii. Have field experience on 97 Austronesian languages in Sarawak, Papua New Guinea, and Taiwan.
