Michael T. Richter is an experienced software developer with a 12-year career focused on telephony (9 years) and cryptography (3 years) who made a mid-career shift to teaching EFL in China (10 years). He has a natural interest in (and likes to think a talent for) computer languages as well as human languages and reads insatiably on a wide variety of topics. He is a fluent speaker of German, a moderate speaker of French and a "survival-level" speaker of Chinese (Mandarin, to be specific). Among his many hobbies, board/miniatures strategy and war games loom large, as do pencil-and-paper role-playing games. He is almost entirely self-educated.
