    What I'm up to, in no particular order ...

  • I've been developing languages for Tex Thompson's "Children of the drought" series of epic fantasy novels, set in a multicultural alternate world reminiscent of the American Southwest: One Night in Sixes (2014), Medicine for the Dead (2015), and a third book in progress ... Here's a real nice article with more details about the setting and languages.
  • Sometimes I teach linguistics and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at Bowling Green State University.
  • I play bass (Gold Tone MicroBass and/or Kala U-Bass) with the Grande Royale Ükulelists of the Black Swamp.
  • I'm also the music director at Peace Lutheran Church—a small, progressive, eclectic ELCA congregation.
  • In 2013 I narrated a regional-Emmy-winning documentary about the Lima Locomotive Works for WBGU TV. You can purchase a DVD from the station, but so far the show has not been available to stream online; alas, there aren't even any YouTube clips I can link to...
