Hi. Here’s how to pronounce my name: say “yeeshun” for my first name — pronounce the “y” until you remember it’s there, and make it a short “u” — and “lie” for my last.

This is the first thing I tell almost everyone I meet. Folks have this funky thing where, if they think your name is “foreign” or “other,” they’re less likely to call you.
