ELCOME to my attempt at creating a user page.
I am now retired from the workforce after a career in the computer software field.
My interests include astronomy, critical thinking, martial arts and home renovation.
Human behaviour fascinates, confuses and scares me in pretty much equal degrees.
I made my first Wikipedia edit in March 2014, and one day I hope to be good at it.

My user pages
- Disclosure of interests
I strive to make improving Wikipedia my highest priority. I edit most often in areas I care about, and I attempt to avoid conflicts of interest, so I offer the following information for transparency:
- I am a past employee of IBM, Logica, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, EDS and Hewlett-Packard. I no longer have any connection with any of these fine companies other than sometimes as a retail customer, although I still have social contact with some ex-colleagues occasionally, and I have been a member of the Australian Computer Society since the 1980s.
- I am a graduate of the University of Sydney (Bachelors and Masters degrees). I did post-graduate studies at Macquarie University, where I was also employed as a tutor. I am and have been a member of the Macquarie University Sport and Aquatic Centre since the mid-1980s.
- I have been a member of the Astronomical Society of New South Wales since the mid-1990s, although I have never been an employee, and my contributions are my own.
Awards and Accomplishments
|The Excellent New Editor's Barnstar
A new editor on the right path
|Because you have made many spot-on edits and other contributions in just a couple of months; your user page is cool--I love the bit about human behavior--so true!; you gave me a great suggestion at the Teahouse; and you have contributed to an article involving my ancestral clan - MacQuarrie (spelling varies). I took that as a Jungian synchronicity thing. Cheers! - Mark D Worthen PsyD 12:28, 28 April 2014 (UTC)|
A kitten for you!
