Hi! My name is David Peterson. I created the Dothraki and Valyrian languages for HBO’s Game of Thrones, and work as the alien language and culture consultant on Syfy’s Defiance and the CW’s Star-Crossed. I also created the Shiväisith language for Thor: The Dark World, and the Lishepus language for Syfy’s Dominion. I’m a native of Southern California and a big fan of mild weather.

Regarding this site, I contribute to and run a number of blogs in various places across the web. In order to simplify things, I’ve collected them all in one place. By subscribing to this feed, you can subscribe to every blog I write for. If nothing else, it will help to prove that I’m not as lazy as I appear to be.
