I'm Patrick. I'm an American living in Tokyo, where I have been for three years. I am in the process of launching a social network to connect Japanese and English speakers around the world. Most websites for meeting people quickly degenerate into debauchery; I'm hoping that mine can be different, and the design of the website reflects that desire.
I also maintain Nihongo Pera Pera, a guide to learning Japanese and preparing for the JLPT, and I serve as volunteer webmaster for The Mnemosyne Project, an excellent piece of free software for memorizing anything. Since I do all my websites in Drupal now, you can often find me hanging out on Drupal Answers.
My hobbies include movies (both making and watching), writing, reading, and taking long walks with no particular destination in mind (although starting off from the Sumida river is always nice). For more about me, check out my blog below or one of my social network profiles to the right.
