I'm currently a doctoral student in the Linguistics department at The University of Texas at Austin.
Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I attended New Mexico State University where I majored in Kinesiology. After becoming increasingly interested in motor learning and development, I attended Gallaudet University for a Master's degree in Linguistics, allowing for a fusion of interests in motor skill acquisition combined with signed language acquisition. My current interests lie in adult acquisition of phonetics & phonology in ASL. I also teach ASL at UT Austin.
