    From time to time, I will suggest edits to the page for NPR, where I was employed as a software engineer. As with all of my edits, I try my best to take a neutral point of view, free of marketing and advertorial content. I provide third-party citations needed for verification to the extent possible. I welcome any edits and feedback from the Wikipedia community in regards to my edits and suggested edits.

    Things to do[edit]

    • Generally fill in gaps and build out the pages for American ornithologists, botanists, and other naturalists, especially women.
    • Get a definitive spelling of John Livzey Ridgway's middle name.
    • Master the layout of my userboxes.
