Status[edit]

I had my first baby in February, 2011, and since then I've been mostly absent from Wikipedia.

Background[edit]

I'm from Oregon, and have a bachelor of science in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Middle East studies.

I'm 1/4 French, 1/4 Italian, 1/16 Nez Perce, and the rest a mix of Northern European.

I've lived in Mexico, Spain, China, and Qatar for significant periods of time.

Edits[edit]

My first edit was on 17 June 2005, and since then I've been active on the Bahá'í pages. I also edit a lot of Islamic and other religious pages, and I'm trying to standardize the MOS for Arabic transliteration.

I made over 8,800 edits as Cunado19, and in January 2008 I switched to the current user name of Cuñado and added 1,200 more by August 2009, making it 10,000 overall.

I started out being expansionist, making lots of new pages and wikilinking everything. Now I'm a minimalist; I'll try to consolidate articles, make them more concise or summary style. I will almost always vote for deletion in an AFD. I make as few categories and wikilinks as I can, while still using them where appropriate.

Cuñado[edit]

Wikipedians have mis-spelled my name as Cunardo, Cuando, Cunada, Cornholio, Cunaldo, Canado, Conado, and other forms of Cunado. For those of you wondering, cuñado is Spanish for "Brother in law". When I was 14 I lived in Mexico, and everyone thought my sister was hot. Cuñado became my nickname.

Lifetime Goals[edit]

I once had a few lifetime goals, like to jump out of an airplane, and see the Great Wall, but I'd accomplished them all by the age of 22 (the trick is to aim low). I decided on some new goals: I want to hug an Orangutan, visit the Kaaba in Mecca, exterminate all of the English Ivy in the Pacific Northwest, and adopt a little Chinese girl.
