My interests:

Comedy and Art:

I decided back in March/April, 2012 to combine Comedy with Art and start writing/drawing my own comics.

Web Development:

I wanted my own unique place to share these comics, so I started learning PHP to create my own website- Hitting Trees with Sticks.com, which I recently launched. Big thanks to the the Stackoverflow community for all of your guidance and encouragement.

Mandarin Chinese: (Moderator♦ on Chinese SE)

I've also been learning Mandarin Chinese for 6 years and have spent some time over in Taiwan (5 months) and Beijing (2 weeks). I was given the opportunity to provide interpretation for General Electric at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. To give back to StackExchange, I've recently become active in helping out on the Chinese Language and Usage site (http://chinese.stackexchange.com/).

@congusbongus are you saying that my usage above- 好高 (Hào gāo): quite high- is incorrect?

comment Trying to think of creative name for beginner Chinese class
@Stan does "中国行" have the meaning of "literally traveling to China"? I don't want that meaning. I'm looking for a metaphor to describe a student's journey to learn about East Asia (more specifically, China), which they will do through my class. Does "东游记" not work at all?
