Hi. I'm Marcus. I am an undergraduate studying German and History at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. I am a photographer, amateur cyclist and civil rights activist. I love disruptive technology, and I help write about startups that are doing cool things. I am an cycling enthusiast, a university student and an amateur photographer.

My interests on Wikipedia consist of ground combat vehicle technologies, aerial warfare, Pentagon acquisitions and U.S. military actions abroad.

I've been to six St. Louis-area meetups and to Wikimania 2012 in Washington, D.C. I was the St. Louis representative for the now semi-defunct Wikimedia United States Coalition. I remain a contact for the St. Louis region and WikiProject Missouri.

I currently shoot with a Canon EOS 7D/whatever I can get my hands on and a couple of primes. I edit with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Photoshop. I attend a lot of speaking and sporting events at my university so I tend to have access to a lot of subjects. And just a really quick note about my software preferences: I edit almost exclusively from Google Chrome on Windows 10 and Chrome OS.
