I'm a chemical engineer turned software consultant. I grew up in rural southern Ohio, and spent 10 years or so in beautiful California. More recently, I worked for a spell in the United Kingdom, including about a year in London. What an amazing, wonderful city!
I've recently been promoted to administrator, fulfilling a long-term goal. I spend most of my time these days getting accustomed to admin duties.
Some of my contributions before my new role include:
Disambiguation, disambiguation, and still more disambiguation. I've focused most of my Toolserver work to the Disambiguation pages with links project, culminating in the Monthly Dab Challenge, a friendly contest to see who can fix the most disambig links in a month. The contest has been a huge success, greatly reducing the number of links to disambiguation pages. It is my conviction that we can overcome this huge backlog - eventually.
Contributing to Wikiproject Chemicals, creating SVGs of chemical structures from suggestions at Chemical images that should be in SVG format. My favorite work, Apamin (a component in bee venom), is to the right.
Taking photos for Wikipedia articles, usually images of large buildings or bridges that need to be stitched into a panorama. I use a Canon EOS 20D, stitch my panoramas using PTGui, and clean them up in Photoshop CS3. You can see some of my favorite contributions on my Commons page. To the left is the New River Gorge Bridge - a picture that earned featured status for Wikipedia.
