sorry, I haven’t been that great of a tumblrer lately. stupid real life got in the way and my laptop broke.
Mostly Central Asia, Afghanistan, the Caucasus, FSU in general, and occasionally the wider Middle East and China. Plus a few other eclectic tidbits. I have traveled throughout quite a bit of the former Soviet Union and have an MA in Central Eurasian Studies.
I am into Indo-Iranic people, Turks of all kinds, the people of the Caucasus, Eurasian languages, Turko-Persian culture and history, the international relations of the former Soviet Union, Arsenal Football Club, BYU football, house and nu-disco, watching cartoons with my my two year old son, classical liberalism, all kinds of theology, and snark. Linguistically, I speak very good French, and middling Russian, Uzbek, and Turkish. Feel free to ask me anything, but please be nice.
