Lucas Czarnecki

Lucas Czarnecki does things with words. Sometimes he writes them down, sometimes he dresses them up, and sometimes he says them aloud. When he’s not doing any of that, Lucas helps other people learn about words, and sometimes he plans events (that way a bunch of word-lovers can huddle together and chat about the things they do with words).
