I am an American who was raised in the Sonoran Desert and on the beaches of California, and lived for many years in Denmark. I admit to being a reference junkie. My Wikipedia activity began years ago with anonymous edits. In April 2008, I registered this account and have been bumbling around these pages, portals, projects and virtual back alleys ever since. Outside, in the real world, I work as a writer and science educator. In here, I am an administrator and contribute mostly to copyright violation investigations. I am also active in the Film Project, especially articles related to Danish Cinema. However, I'm just as likely to wander into any article relating to my experiences as a son, a student, a cadet commander, a space cadet, a beach boy, a busboy, a waiter, a chemist, a bum, a marine biologist, a divemaster, a husband, a father, a journalist, an author, a school teacher, a traveler, a gardener, a genealogist, a daydreamer, etc., etc., etc....
... Ironically, being called a "User" used to be a pejorative -- but here on WP, it ain't a bad thing at all.
