Greetings to you! I'm Carmen Cordis, an enthusiastic wordsmith, choral singer, and lover of languages living in Portland, Oregon.
I often draw inspiration from ancient history, archaeology, and multicultural anthropology to seek out connections between languages, time periods, and human experiences. As a lifelong learner, I especially enjoy exploring and sharing the wonders of art history, as a mirror of cultural development and a window through time.

The Ascend Project at Mozilla has helped me so much to enrich myself and my career as a more aware member of the modern era.
