Team Captain/Jungler, Gentleman Gaming/Funk Overload

July 2010 – Present

Gentleman Gaming started as a casual team among friends, but as some of the team members fell away from League of Legends while the others climbed the ladder, the team eventually disbanded due to irreconcilable differences. It would later reform as Funk Overload, with old Gentleman members Dünkmaster, wuigi, and Gentleman Gustaf retaining their spots. They were soon joined by Triforce GG at support and Giygas Reborn at AD. When wuigi was picked up by another team, he was replaced by banjo nuts. Wuigi would later rejoin the team as coach and general sub. The team disbanded due to real-life commitments and a computer crash, but hopes to be back for 2015, with Gentleman Gustaf, Dunkmaster returning with their tried-and-true positions Wuigi returning as an ADC, and TheSandyOne joining at support.

Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics, Reed College

September 2007 – May 2011

Analytical and empirical studies of the inherent structure of language, with a long-term focus on the interaction between the semantic content (meaning) of words and phrases and their syntactic form (structure).

Largely focused on English, but relied on significant appeal to the structure of other languages to justify the universality of linguistic claims presented.
