I was born in Macon, Georgia, on November 29, 1978. I grew up there and attended the now-defunct Gilead Christian Academy from kindergarten through 12th grade. After graduating on May 31, 1996, I went to Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tennessee. I graduated on May 6, 2000, with a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree and a triple major in Business Administration, Accounting, and Computer Information Systems. I spent just over three years working as a computer programmer at Compco, a small telecommunications company in Brentwood, Tennessee, before deciding to go back for a Master's degree in the fall of 2003. I attended Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and I received a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Industrial/Organizational Psychology on August 14, 2005. Just before graduating, I started a job as a data analyst for the consulting services division of Quorum Health Resources, a health care management company headquartered in Brentwood. After four years, I left QHR to work as a research analyst at HealthStream, a company in downtown Nashville that handles satisfaction surveys for hospitals all over the country. I currently live in Nashville.


My main hobby is swing dancing, which I do quite often. My primary interest is Lindy Hop, although I also do quite a bit of Balboa, East Coast Swing, Blues, Charleston, and Collegiate Shag. I received most of my training from Music City Motion, although I have taken classes from many well-known instructors, including Frankie Manning. I am familiar with several other types of dances including some ballroom dancing and Argentine tango, but I do not do them nearly as often.

Video games used to be another major interest of mine, although that has lessened due to a lack of time. My preferred types of games are role-playing games, adventure games, and strategy games, although I tend to enjoy games in all categories. My favorite game franchises are Final Fantasy, Myst, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Assassin's Creed, BioShock, and all of the Blizzard Entertainment games.

I have a strong interest in logic and philosophy, and I enjoy learning about sciences of all kinds. I consider myself a skeptic, and I prefer to base my core beliefs on scientific evidence. In spite of this, I like studying various aspects of Christian theology and church history, particularly Arminianism.

Wikipedia role[edit]

I joined Wikipedia on June 6, 2005, although I had been reading it for months before then. I will most likely be involved in editing articles related to the material listed above. I think about things in a highly organized manner and tend to be pretty good in making information flow logically. I am very focused on making things consistent and try to apply the same formatting across articles. In addition, I am quite detailed when it comes to grammar and formatting, so I will also be correcting any such errors that I see.

I started out working on reorganizing the list of colleges and universities in the United States. I abandoned this project after other editors took it into a different (and better) direction. My involvement in Wikipedia has lessened, and I rarely edit anymore. However, I am somewhat involved in the Psychology Wikiproject, the Dance Wikiproject, and the Church of the Nazarene WikiProject.
