Programmer in ObjC, Ruby and most web scripting languages. Fluent in Japanese with 16 years experience speaking the language. Lived in Japan 5.5 years. Attained JLPT1 (on my first go - woo!) in 1999. I love Japanese language trivia plus anything good for the Izakaya gets me going! Language study is for the speakers, not just the linguists. :D
