I've been studying Chinese since 2006, but I've only made short visits to China, so my progress is slow. I've built some study software to help me learn. I also participate on tatoeba.org.

My other hobby is board game design.

I'm just paying it forward, @Ciaocibai. I couldn't have built any of my tools without the huge effort that other people put into projects like ZDT, CEDICT, and Tatoeba.
