This user is a
Registered Editor
and is entitled to display this Service Badge.

I have been on Wikipedia since 2007, with most editing coming from the creation and major copy-edit of articles. However, when I prefer some light relief, I do edit minor-ish stuff and patrol new and random pages.

Acabashi as a name has no meaning or relevance. I use only this ID on Wikipedia and its associated accounts, and on Flickr.

I live in London, with my immediate and historic family being God's Own County Yorkshire—particularly Hull—on all branches back into the 18th century.

My interests are 18th- and 19th-century Europe, theatre, art, architecture, education, cricket, dogs, and genealogy.

My work in the real world has included design for theatre and music performance; interior design/decoration; illustration; site design for outdoor events; and teacher of art from tertiary to post-graduate level.

My Wikimedia images on the Acabashi media page here, includes an offer to take photos for those who might find it useful. Please make requests on this Wikipedia user talk page. When I'm not over-active here on Pedia... I'm probably Media-ing, or working in the real world.
