Hello there! If we were doing medieval title things to move things along rather more quickly than is typical these days, I would introduce myself as McKinley the Droll of Cleveland, Cellist from the South, Lover of Words and General Thing-Doer. That's all you need to know about me in a nutshell: I love words ('droll' is a good one) and mashing them together into sentence things. I play quite a lot of cello (as a performer in far too many ensembles, a teacher, and a learner). I also do things (including but not limited to fencing, trying to stop being an undecided major, petting kittens, volunteering, and consuming coffee). I have proposed we make the medieval title practice as widespread as personal gender pronouns here at Oberlin, but unfortunately it has yet to catch on.
Beyond titles: I call both Cleveland and Texas my home, so I am well-versed in complaining about all types of weather. Despite this, I can usually be found strolling in the more or less great outdoors, regardless of the type of weather. When found, I will usually talk to you most enthusiastically about classical music (the sharing of which I have made a focus of my blog), Jascha Heifetz, cupcakes, neuroplasticity, or whatever you would like to talk about. Come introduce yourself! (Titles are optional.)
