CV: pdf



I was born and raised among the hills, forests, and fields of eastern Pennsylvania. I spent my undergraduate years
at Penn State University and graduated with a BA in Spanish and a BA in Integrative Arts. For several years following
graduation, I apprenticed and worked as a goldsmith and then returned to Penn State as a graduate student. I am currently
a PhD candidate in Spanish Linguistics, and my dissertation research involves the grammaticalization of modal verb
constructions that express obligation in the history of Spanish.
