I am a former nuclear engineer now retraining into accounting. I've lived in rural Ohio, Cincinnati, southern Arizona, San Jose, California, Syracuse, New York, New Castle, Delaware and now near Philadelphia.

I am a member of Mensa and, formerly, the Triple Nine Society. My Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is INTP.

I discovered Wikipedia in April, 2005, and at first posted a couple of stubs and added to a list. Since then I've added Timeline of the American Civil Rights Movement, posted more stubs, helped complete some lists, and helped clean up articles listed on some other lists. I've added half a dozen complete (though short) non-list articles and several stubs.

I've been through the RfC, RfP, and RfM processes regarding the Price-Anderson Nuclear Industries Indemnity Act. I gave evidence in an Arbitration involving user conduct on that article and others.

I have added a number of stubs for railroad museums and heritage railways. I've standardized some aspects of the files for all such museums/railways, and added about 35 of them to list of heritage railways. I've also been involved with Loop Current.

I read The Arab Mind in early 2007, an older, controversial cultural psychology book, and put up a stub about it.

I largely follow the nuclear power and major civil rights pages. Though no longer an expert, I try to keep the pages current. I last took text from Nuclear power into the interesting topic of Economics of new nuclear power plants, and we will be generalizing the comparisons in that into something like Comparisons of costs of new power generation facilities.

Thru mid-May, 2006, I had made over 3700 edits (2560 on articles) on over 1075 different pages on this UserID.

I just returned on February 4th, 2008 from an extended time away from Wikipedia.
