Do you speak chinese?

Yes. Even though I reached a pretty good non-native level of fluency 13 years ago and even though I can still read Chinese, I've again become very shy about speaking it. I don't maintain my skills. I don't have any Chinese-speaking friends or colleagues. I could probably speak well again if I loosened up a bit and got some practice.

Have you been to china?

I've been to China twice. Once in 1994 and once in 2004. I lived in Taiwan for 2 years from 1996 to 1998.

What is your favorite Chinese language movie or television program?

I don't have one. Maybe somebody could suggest something. I get discouraged because trying to watch tv shows in Chinese feels like work, not fun.

Do you prefer to meet in the evenings after work or on the weekends?

Well, I'm simply unavailable to meet many evenings and most weekends, but I'm happy meeting evenings or weekends if I'm free.

What activities are you interested in?

I like tennis, writing, gardening, and cooking.
