Background[edit]

I live in New England (USA) where I practice law.

Contributions[edit]

On Wikipedia I primarily focus on articles dealing with my local historic sites and notable people. Over the past years, I've added new articles and stubs about New England's National Historic Places using the National Register infobox generator. Despite receiving several complaints about my brief NRHP stubs, I believe minimal stubs are better than nothing at all. The sooner the stubs are up, the sooner everyone can add to them. Feel free to drop me a message on the the talk page!

Substantial contributions or new articles include:
