Hi! My name is Pablo David Flores and I have no taste for nicknames. I live in Rosario (home of Fito Páez and Che Guevara), Argentina (home of tango, the pampas, the dulce de leche, Diego Maradona and the largest national debt default in history).

The Barnstar of National Merit for my work in Argentina-related articles.

I have interest in many fields; here in Wikipedia I've worked on

I've been also trying to counter Wikipedia's systemic bias, and taking care of articles about Argentina, and about my little corner of it, Rosario. (See Category:Argentina, Category:Rosario.) I'm a member of WikiProject Argentina.

My native language is Spanish (Rioplatense dialect). I have an advanced level of English too, except when it comes to specific or technical words outside my field(s). I can gather most of the meaning of a text in any Western Romance language (but then most educated Spanish speakers can do the same).

I studied Japanese at the Japanese Association of Rosario between 2004 and 2007; I took (and passed) the third level (三級 sankyū) of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (日本語能力試験 Nihongo Nōryoku Shiken) on 3 December 2006.

I'm an amateur photographer. I regularly post selected pictures on Flickr. I used to have a photoblog, Vista Rosario, which is now inactive. For a time I also wrote an English-language personal and op-ed blog, D for Disorientation. Then I moved on to a Spanish-language counterpart, Sin calma. Nowadays I criticize religion at Alerta Religión and I write about science and skepticism on the official blog of the Círculo Escéptico Argentino.
