BA/MA in Linguistics:
For now I plan to continue working in my current job (HVAC), but whether or not I end up working in a linguistics field soon, the process of earning my degrees has been very valuable in shaping me as a person and a thinker. I'm immensely grateful to my parents who have encouraged and enabled me to earn this degree. My wonderful wife has been incredibly patient with me, helped me keep going in the hardest moments, reminded me to take breaks, and held me up in countless other ways. I'm grateful as well to the many fantastic professors who have poured into me over the last five years.
