Interested parties may wish to visit my website, Gyrofrog Communications.

In January 2012, I completed a Wikipedia Signpost interview about WikiProject Jazz.

Some articles I've started[edit]

Many of these involved little effort on my part. This is more of an indicator as to where my interests lie, in case anyone's curious.

Awards[edit]

Gyrofrog is presented this Africa Award for his excellent contributions to Africa-related articles, particularly his work on East Africa-related coverage. Presented by Dvyost from the Africa-related regional notice board
