Margaret speaking at a conference

Here you can find information about my experience, education, and background. I am a linguist with a PhD from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa and have worked with multiple creators since 2018 to create around 20 constructed languages total. I have also made orthographies or written systems for these languages. I have made both digital fonts and calligraphic scripts to represent these writing systems. I am experienced in both digital and ink calligraphy.
