Hello!

I'm a pianist from Ft. Worth, Texas, who discovered Wikipedia in the age of the cavemen but not really, in 2007. Although I'm past my prime (the term "prime" used loosely here), my mainspace contributions mostly consisted of music articles, battleship/battlecruiser/MilHist articles (mostly to help out my good friend the_ed17) and other miscellanea that seemed unloved. I was also a prolific helper at WP:MOTD, a little fun project that caught my eye, as all things sparkly and shiny do. In addition, I've assisted with P:CLM and, even in semi-retirement, am always available to help out newbies (if and when they ask for it – if you are new to Wikipedia, please drop by!). Though I'm not as active as I used to be, I haven't completely vanished from the face of the earth. Since you really would have liked that.

Currently, I am an Online Ambassador (if you don't know what one is, please find out Face-smile.svg) I also contribute by uploading recordings, which you can see in that general direction →. All were recorded at my university's gorgeous hall, which, alas, I cannot name due to privacy concerns. It's a lovely set-up, though. Makes me sound all awesome and stuff.

Off Wikipedia, I enjoy the whirlwind 100-mile-per-hour life of a classical musician. It's not for everyone, but I feel lucky having found something that I actually love to do. If you ever have any questions about music, make my day by finding me at irc://irc.freenode.net (I'm la_pianista - usually there daily, on evenings in America) or by emailing me. You won't regret it. Maybe.

By the way, big love and thanks to Sonia and Ktr101 for designing this userpage as a Christmas present. ^.^ So if you want a page of equal or lesser attractiveness, bug them.

Recordings

All recordings are public domain (and yes, they are my very own). They are all generally unedited recordings (aside from a few mild noise reduction edits), but you may hear the occasional cough, sneeze, dropped notebook, cry for help, or blood-curdling scream in the background.
