I took a few NLP courses while studying abroad in Hong Kong and Paris. I like learning languages, and I like learning computer science. So, I like the idea of applying programming skills to manipulating natural languages. It's intriguing to me trying to create order out of natural languages which have many nuances and various connotations, spoken and written. I'm captivated by all things linguistic really.
I never really have been.
I'm new to the bay area, and am currently just programming on my own as a hobby. I speak native English, conversational French and German, and have studied Spanish and Chinese.
