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/).

comment Measure word usage with 这个/那个
Chinese is heavily based on context. So if the reader/listener has previous knowledge of the described object, you can continue using the appropriate measure word... 我昨天买了一本书 (Wǒ zuótiān mǎile yī běn shū)。我后来把那本送给朋友了 (Wǒ hòulái bǎ nà běn sòng gěi péngyǒule)。
