I'm Ks0stm, a storm chaser and University of Oklahoma student originally from Salina, Kansas. Like many people from Kansas, I get tired of Wizard of Oz jokes and relatively bored with the area, but I love it nonetheless. My username's etymology is that of a United States amateur radio call sign; it is the one that I wish to have when (if?) I get my amateur radio license. Anything else you would want to know about me personally is probably over there (→) in my userboxes, but if not, feel free to ask.

My article editing activities mostly revolve around articles involving meteorology, familiar locations, and geography. I became an administrator in September 2011 (Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Ks0stm), and as an administrator I'll dabble just about anywhere. I will occasionally participate in deletion discussions, an activity complicated by the fact that I usually lack an opinion on whether or not an article should be deleted.

If you would like to contact me off wiki, feel free to do so via email, but also consider leaving a {{You've got mail}} on my talk page. You can also contact me on IRC, where I sometimes hang around in the #wikipedia-en-roads connect and #wiki-hurricanes connect channels, among others. I also lurk in my own channel, ##Ks0stm connect, though most of the time it just sits collecting dust.

I am also known as Ks0stm on all Wikimedia projects, IRC, and many other websites.
