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

I started by working on pages about the area around my birthplace, Hertford, UK, and my then adopted home, Rome, as well as places I have travelled 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, upgraded coverage of places in Rome, including several museums. In 2017 I moved to Cascais and have been working on new articles about the Lisbon area of Portugal, including several on lighthouses.

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:
