||I am an illustrator, graphic designer and sculptor|mi terpixra

primarily interested in Lojban for use in fiction and art.|noi ralju selci'i la .lojban. tepi'o lo lisri .e lo selpixra

I learned about Lojban in 2000|mi facki la lojban di'e renonono

and have almost half the root words and grammar words memorized.|gi'e mi punji pimu lo'i gismu .e lo'i cmavo lemi mo'isro

I am translating The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran into Lojban.|mi ca'o fanva la prije ctuca poi fi'o la .kalilgibran. ku'o la lojban||

||I give an annual Lojban presentation with slides|mi nanca jarco le nunctuca sepi'o loi pixra

at enguicon, a combination science fiction and open source software convention|di'o la .penguikan. noi skefi'a je samselpla girzu salci

which I help to run in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, USA.|noi mi sidju sazri di'o le se tcadu poi .detroitmicigan. ku'o ku'o ku'o

This presentation started a group of Lojban enthusiasts which meets in my home.|la'e di'u rinka le lojbo cinri girzu poi penmi zvati lemi se xabju ku'o||

I designed an alternative Lojban logo, depicted above, and would be very happy to provide free illustrations and page layout for upcoming editions of The Complete Lojban Language or jbocre: What Is Lojban?, The Book.

I maintain n extensive Lojban page on my web site featuring:

  • a groovy Lojbanistan mural
  • reasons to value and enjoy Lojban as a puzzle and for its mystique
  • the translation of I Am A Little Teapot Of Borg
  • translations of Nicholas Gurewich's Perry Bible Fellowship web comic

I create the Lojban podcast, "jbocradi." I would like to someday host a call-in internet broadcast about the language assisted by chat and whiteboard communication.

Since being elected to membership in The Logical Language Group and board of directors, I had an idea to offer Lojban enthusiasts citizenship in a faux internet nation, xartum, which would double as a text-based online game.

I shepherd the following tasks:
