I joined Wikipedia in December 2003. My main interests are in aircraft, architecture, film, history, journalism, geography, outer space, and visual effects. I also have gained an interest in current events, especially with regards to terrorism and the Iraq War. Research is a favorite pursuit of mine, as I often scour news archives for hard-to-find information such as birthdates and death dates.
