My name is Richard Feicht, and I'm a 2004 graduate of DePauw University (Greencastle, Indiana, USA), where I majored in East Asian Studies (Japanese). I've been a contributor to Wikipedia for years, and that is where I found out about Citizendium. I've been living in Asia (Japan, Thailand, Korea, China) since graduating from college, so I have a basic understanding of Korean, and can speak Chinese and Japanese. I've been an international student at Sichuan University (Chengdu, Sichuan, China: January 2009 - April 2010) and Kansai Gaidai University (Osaka, Japan: August 2002- May 2003). I'm 28 years old now, and ready for "Wikipedia for grown-ups" because I was spending too much time dealing with vandalism on Wikipedia, and I was sick of its terrible reputation.
