My real name is Allen. I enjoy writing and proofreading, and am native English speaker. For historical perspective, I joined on 14 Jan 2012, during the SOPA discussion, but really started editing on 18 Mar 2012. Because I enjoy writing, and frequently indulge in Wikipedia reading sessions (which occasionally get out of hand), becoming a Wikipedian and Wikibookian was a natural step. As of 2014, I'm a high school student.

Interests: programming, cryptography, linguistics.

Major contributions (Wikipedia):

French dip sandwich

Major contributions (Wikibooks):

Chinese (Mandarin)
TI-Basic Z80 Programming
Cookbook:Anzac Biscuits

As you can see from the wikiboxes, I haven't yet deeply mastered a particular programming language.

Some of my favorite activities are converting lists to wikitables (Chinese (Mandarin)/Radicals); fixing spelling, grammar, and sentence structure; making things concise and easy to read (my favorite); laying out the table of contents of a wikibook (Transportation Economics, Movie Making Manual); and putting {{clear}} in the right place (Department of Fun). My most epic series of edits occurred on Chinese (Mandarin)/Slang.

My editing habits: I'm a frequent reader, and am constantly making small edits. I'll occasionally go through phases where I contribute more, depending on my free time and if I happen to find an interesting topic. I also enjoy reading user pages (which I find mainly through article histories and talk page discussions, though I'll occasionally browse from a category).
