I'm Marcus Anthony Smith, any similarities to historical personages is
purely coincidental. Age 23. I currenlty reside in Los Angeles, but have
lived in many places in my life including southern Spain. I can't claim to
speak many languages, but at some point in my life, I've been able to carry
on a substantial conversation in Spanish, German, and Japanese. I have
reading knowledge of Latin (though that is quickly disappearing), I have
written a two hundred word story in Chickasaw and am currently working on
Pima (6 months so far, and reasearch for a MA thesis starting soon).
