My userbox whimsies

Hi, I'm Axl Matulić. How does one define oneself? I'm reminded of the episode in Babylon 5, "Comes the Inquisitor," in which a Vorlon inquisitor is never satisfied with Delenn's answers to his repeated question "Who are you?" Well....

Background

I'm a scientist who has worked as an engineer for the past 25 (approx) years, mostly in the field of stealth technology. I don't contribute much to stealth topics on Wikipedia except to correct minor misconceptions written by those not versed in the field. Independently, on my own, I spent a year or so studying religions of the world and biology. Along the way I also got an MBA degree in addition to my B.S. in Physics.

I enjoy anime, role-playing games, educational topics, and especially travel. I'm American, but my mother is German, my father is Croatian, my spouse is Singaporean. I have traveled all over Europe and Eastern Europe, also Canada and Mexico, as well as Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, and Southeast Asia (particularly Singapore as well as Malaysia and Thailand). I must say Croatia is one of the more beautiful countries I have ever seen, and Stockholm and Dubrovnik are the most beautiful cities I have visited. Unfortunately I have never set foot south of the equator (Singapore is the closest I've come), and hope to do that someday.

I also enjoy wine. Read my profile on the Wikipedia wine project.

Scale of justice gold.jpg This user values third opinions and occasionally provides one.


Third opinions

I enjoy offering third opinions in disputes between two editors who have reached an impasse. There's something satisfying about coming to an article I have no opinion about, studying the edit history and talk page discussion, and offering a neutral disinterested viewpoint in an attempt to resolve the dispute. I think the Wikipedia:Third opinion page is a great vehicle for dispute resolution, and more people should use it and participate. My third opinions:
