About me

Gender MALE
Industry Non-Profit
Occupation linguist
Location Spokane, Washington, United States
Introduction I am a linguist, Bible translator with the Cheyennes, English editor, genealogist (focusing on my Alaskan roots), ham radio operator, grandfather of 10, and sometimes a poet. I like reading good English and that spills over into how I approach English translations of the Bible. I'm not so concerned about what translation philosophy was followed as I am about whether a translation is accurate and if it is good quality English.
