hi, i'm Ed.


i do linguistics

I became a linguist at my alma mater, the University of Michigan.

I earned my Ph.D. from Cornell in 2013. If you want the details, you can read my dissertation on imperatives.

I now am back in Ann Arbor, doing applied linguistics and development for CaMLA, an ESL testing non-profit.

I also like conlangs and teaching people to not be afraid of writing.

i do other stuff

I'm a citizen of the internet.

I've been a Mac user since the dark days of the mid-90s. I love a good GUI and being a power user. I like making my work fun and fast by using smart automation and crafting my own software tools.

I enjoy sports and food of all flavors — I have preferences but I'm not picky.
