My chief area of interest is Classical Antiquity; however, I am interested in many other things and I do not limit my editing to just what I am most familiar with. I technically began editing in 2012, using Wikipedia as some sort of personal website to write my literature essays. After a couple of wrong edits in 2012 I went until 2015 before returning to Wikipedia with the intent to edit constructively.

I will not be as busy on Wikipedia now that I'm in college. I'll probably get on a few times a month, though.

"Career" at Wikipedia[edit]


Landscape with Dido and Aeneas, by Thomas Jones (1769)

Marcus Sedatius Severianus was the first article that I created which wasn't a redirect. I then continued to create small articles about obscure Romans until I became briefly fascinated with translating French articles into English, the first being Prosopographia Imperii Romani. To this day I have continued to make articles on obscure figures and even made an article on French actor, Xavier Robic.

Toward the end of 2015, I began dabbling with templates: I created Template:Classical epigraphy and Template:Classical prosopography to help readers navigate leading figures in each respective field. Noticing the Severans were a big family whose tree was available in other languages, I endeavored successfully to make Template:Severan dynasty family tree. Thus 2015 concluded.


The new year began, and I returned. That year I began adding articles of various Roman families, starting with the Sossii. Little changed for me the first half of the year: I was still focused on small time Romans when time permitted. I did make Lucius Fulcinius Trio, a fairly complete article for such an unknown figure.

In December, I began and completed articles on all members of the Decemvirate. Not to say I wrote all of them, just that I filled the remaining majority.


2017 was a change in gears. Instead of creating new articles I chose to focus more on expanding what articles we already have. I also began project Rising Eagle: improving articles on Julio-Claudians, beginning with Germanicus. The goals is to get them all to GA and later to FA. At the end of the year, in December, I did crank out a few fifth-century BC consuls (not that anyone will ever have cause to read those).
