Hello! ¡Hola! Hej![edit]

I'm an American university student studying applied mathematics. I love languages and want to learn tons of them. I'm thinking about using my applied math degree to become a computational linguist.

Where I'm At[edit]

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (e.g. a "Mormon"). From February 2015 to February 2017, I lived in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, teaching people about Christ. I learned Spanish and a bit of some indigenous Mayan languages. I just got back, and now I'm studying Applied Mathematics and Linguistics at BYU in Provo, Utah.

Travel Philosophy[edit]

I have a slight disgust for "touristy" places, and when I travel I prefer to spend time enjoying the natural sights and outdoor activities of the area, and getting to know actual people, actual language and actual culture.

I happen to be in love with Scandinavian culture, geography, and climate, and I want to live in Norway at some point. My family lived in Copenhagen from August 2014 to August 2015, although I was only there for about 3 months total.

Some Other Philosophy[edit]

I hate the Mercator projection with a passion.
