Contrary to popular report, I am an anthropologist who studies Language & Culture, with a doctoral degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

I also write books, which are mostly misunderstood, especially by people who don’t read them but for some reason insist on reviewing them (say, on Amazon).

I am passionate about using delightful words popularized by brand managers.
