This editor is a Master Editor III and is entitled to display this Bufonite Editor Star.


I started editing in 2006 and became an admin in 2012. I am inmate #94,871 [1]. I have around 60,000 edits on all Wikimedia sites. Accounts DennisBrown, Pharmboy and Farmer Brown are also mine, and I have done a fair amount of minor work as an IP, and continue to for various reasons that are allowed under WP:SOCK#LEGIT. My tastes in editing are pretty eclectic, but often I edit articles on American culture, automobiles, military, geography, North Carolina topics and core articles (Dog, bear, tree, etc). I avoid political articles when editing, although I often use the admin tools to keep the peace on those articles.


I've received a lot of barnstars over the years, particularly in the early years when I was more active. There are too many to list on this page, so I put them here. I appreciate each and every one.

Admin actions[edit]

Other admins are free to revert my admin actions if it improves the encyclopedia or likely would have consensus. No prior permission is required, although I do expect a notification afterwards.

All questions about any admin action, by anyone, should be asked on my talk page rather than by email, unless there are privacy issues at stake.

In the interest of openness, here are my stats.

Conflict of interest[edit]

Everyone has a conflict of interest of some kind, I'm just stating mine. I own a (not notable) company that produces ultraviolet products for UV curing and horticulture but will not edit in a way that compromises the integrity of Wikipedia nor furthers my financial interests. While I'm not crazy about the phrase, I am considered somewhat of an expert on many ultraviolet topics. I do edit in these areas, carefully.
