I write and edit pages on economics topics under another user name. I'm also an active contributor to Wikivoyage [1].

I started by working on pages about the area around my birthplace, Hertford, UK, and my adopted home, Rome, as well as places I have traveled to (e.g. Banaue). Researching Waterford, Hertfordshire got me interested in stained glass and in particular in the stained glass artists of the Arts and Crafts Movement. I then contributed a couple of pages on important English pacifists. More recently I have been trying to improve the coverage of the works of the Brazilian writer Jorge Amado and, in 2016, have been continuing to upgrade coverage of places in Rome, including several museums.

I get my kicks by starting new pages rather than by spending a lot of time on existing ones, although if I spot spelling or grammatical errors I will normally attack them. I began by hoping that the pages I created would be rapidly improved by others but in the absence of such a response have now given up bothering, so I guess that makes me a WikiSloth.

My main contributions, more or less in alphabetical order, have been:
