HI! I'M KEVIN MCCOY. I'm from Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and I'm a freelance union stagehand. I do work mostly in the field of lighting and sound, plus production management, and I've spent a number of years on tour.
I've been around Wikipedia since June of 2004, and I've been an administrator since August 2 2005. Joining the project was an obvious move in my continuing slide into the use of open-source/content stuff. My first edit was a minor clarification on USA PATRIOT Act. While I've never really much enjoyed writing, I tend to notice typos and the like quite frequently. So I did a bit of copyediting on Minnesota's page. My first non-minor edit was on KVLY-TV mast and I did a revamp of the page on sound. I've since done some other reworkings of articles, and a bunch of typos and vandalism watch. I spent a few days compiling a list of all the vandalism done by a person (or people working together) at User:Kmccoy/Delfino in order to ensure we reverted all the spam.
I've also uploaded a few pictures, both here and to the Commons. One of my pictures has been used in a number of articles and a few templates, and was even nominated as a featured picture candidate; I took Image:Uscapitolindaylight.jpg while visiting Washington in 2004.
I don't edit much anymore, but I'm sometimes found in the Wikimedia IRC channels on freenode, and (in addition to the normal off-topic chatter that goes on) I like to help users there with Wikipedia-related questions. On occasion I like to help resolve conflicts here on Wikipedia where I can, trying to offer a calming influence.
My global Wikimedia login is Kmccoy.
I've done a fair bit of work as a sound engineer, and I'm happy to provide help here on Wikipedia with any sound editing needs. Just ask on my talk page.
My public PGP key is available.
I borrowed the idea of a display of flags for places visited from Tony the Marine. Thanks. :)
