Welcome to my Blog!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Nicholas, and I'm a Bahá'í (i.e. someone who believes in Bahá'u'lláh, the Manifestation of God for this day and age and Promised One of all ages). I'm English by birth (i.e. I was born in England, and both English and American by ancestry (my mother is American). My direct, patrilinear ancestry is British, as I come from the R1b y-chromosomal haplotype that has inhabited the British Isles for over 10,000 years. I am also a vegetarian and an Esperantist (yes, I speak Esperanto and it is a living, thriving international auxiliary language created by Dr. Zamenhof in the 19th century). I'm currently a postgraduate student of linguistics at SOAS in London. My undegraduate degree in Middle Eastern Languages was completed at the University of Manchester.

My wife is Kenyan, of Luo and Kikuyu ancestry. She speaks Swahili, Dholuo and Kikuyu as her native languages, as well as English.

I regularly contribute to LibriVox, the largest free provider of public domain audiobooks in the world. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit You can see a list of my contributions here.
