Brief excerpt from interview: I'm interested in the relationship between language, culture, and the environment because I think they're very intrinsically linked... There are a lot of endangered languages... If you lose a language, you lose a really unique perspective of the world you live in, so I think it's really important to preserve those languages within a globalized world. A lot of languages are projected to disappear. I think that would be a real tragedy, so I think hopefully in the future I can do something with that.
