About me

I'm a mother-tongue English speaker born and living in the United States. I earned my B.A. from Columbia College (NYC) in 1974, and my J.D. from the University of Minnesota in 1981. Currently I work for the Minnesota state bar association. I enjoy going to plays and reading, and hiking & bicycling and skiing (although I'm not a good skier). I'm fluent in French and Czech, and am trying to learn a little Mandarin, which is why I'm here.

When making corrections or suggesting changes, I try to stick close to standard English editing marks: blue bold is for inserts or additions; stricken-out red is for deletions; and gray is for suggestions or options that aren't strictly needed but are worth considering.

I fairly strongly prefer to have the original Chinese (or whatever) language version, as (1) that can help me learn, and (2) it can help me help you better.

I may not accept friend requests very quickly. I'm not unfriendly or stuck-up, but I'm still working 50+ hours a week, not yet retired, and I have physical-world family and friends too. I may wait to see whether someone sticks around for a while, writing and helping others.
