Hi, my name is Stephen and I am different things to different people.

Although I grew up in the States, I live in Birmingham, UK with my wife, Yoko, and three daughters, Naomi, Mei, and Mia. I teach full time as a stylistician and applied linguist at Newman University.

In my free time, I enjoy long distance running and the Internet.
