I am a peer-reviewed scientist, artificial-intelligence software engineer, and Slavic language expert specializing in Lemko, Polish, Ukrainian, Russian, and US English. I invented the world’s first Lemko machine translation system using hybrid neural and handcrafted rule-based engines, and shared the results with peers in the pages of world-renowned, apex journal publisher Springer Nature.
While I hail from Annapolis, Maryland (Go Navy!), I graduated from college at the same alma mater as astronomer Copernicus and Pope John Paul II: Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, one of the jewels of my ancestral homeland: the Rusyn/Ukrainian borderlands of Austrian Galicia and Upstate Hungary, a national origin shared with artist and probable relation Andy Warhol.
I enjoy street workouts, yoga, cyberpunk, watching Friends in Hungarian, nightlife, cyber-nomading, and revitalizing endangered languages.
