Welcome to my user page. I began using Wikipedia as a resource in 2003 when I was teaching high school, and found it to be a huge help on some of the topics I was teaching. It was interesting to have some uncertainty about the reliability of the articles, but I was usually reading enough sources to verify things, and found that I was rarely, if ever, led astray by the material here. The only thing I remember correcting back then were some poorly phrased sentences on a page about galvanization.
I'm now a web consultant, and have just recently started contributing to Wikipedia. I'm very impressed with the level of activity here and am happy to lend a hand where I can.
I've never kept a blog or really gotten into online communities, but I enjoy the collaboration and productivity of contributing to Wikipedia. Looking forward to more!
I also enjoy construction, arts and crafts (in many mediums), cooking, and outdoor activities such as biking, swimming, hiking, camping, and snowboarding. I like watching movies and exploring new music. I am a news junkie and enjoy keeping up with current events on all topics, but especially science and technology, international news, health, business, and the arts.
