Hi. I'm Marcus. 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. Besides that focus, my interests are too diverse to list here. Head over here if you want to leave me a message. I don't bite.

I came across Wikipedia because of two satirical articles by The Onion in 2008 or so ([1] [2]). After a six-month-long search for the edit button, I registered as User name one on 21 Dec. 2008 to edit golf articles. Later I branched out to military-related topics. I am not as active on the writing side of things anymore but I have been contributing some photos.

I've been to six St. Louis-area meetups and to Wikimania 2012 in Washington, D.C. Currently plotting my own Wikimania in St. Louis.

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, Chrome OS and iOS. Also a fan of stock Android.

I have a lot of tech joy. I get my daily tech fix from CNET, TechCrunch and Engadget.

Favorite startups

Me in the news: Top Wikipedia Editor Is A St. Louis High School Student, Rock Hill teen is prolific Wikipedia editor,[dead link] Did a 15-year-old define your multi-million dollar brand before you did? I was also one of five interviewed for the Stanford student paper "Wikipedia: nowhere to grow."
