Although I joined Wikipedia in December 2010 I only became an active editor at the end of January 2013. I am enjoying the opportunity to contribute and now that I'm retired, I have time to do so. I spend dozens of hours each week researching, writing and reverting vandalism on Wikipedia.

Since I was a youngster I have been interested in reading biographies and autobiographies and I notice that I have subconsciously gravitated towards the same subjects with my Wikipedia editing. I am also interested in up-and-coming businesses and the sporting industry.

I concentrate on expanding and updating existing articles but I do create some new ones. Reverting Wikipedia vandalism is another passion of mine.

I like userboxes and those on the right tell you a bit more about me.

If you would like to leave me a message you can do so at my talk page here and I will answer promptly as I am online virtually every day.


Wikipedia articles that I have substantially revised and updated, or created

Additionally, I have made less extensive edits to hundreds of other articles and reverted many instances of vandalism.

Personal philosophy: "You can't worry about things you can't control"
