Flying my twin-engine Cessna 310Q airplane

Welcome to my page! I'm happy to be part of the worldwide Wikimedia community, writing articles and contributing photos. I began editing on Wikipedia in 2006, writing on a wide range of topics from sports to 19th century history, and became an administrator in August 2008. My photos have been selected for publication by the Encyclopedia Britannica, the AP, UPI, USA Travel Guide, The Pennsylvania Society, and the National Park Service, among others.
