About Me

Hello and welcome to my user-page! My username comes from Stax Records (if you're wondering) and my real name is James. I have lived in Hamden, Connecticut, New Haven, Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut, Hartford, Connecticut, and Wallingford, Connecticut. Stop me if you see a pattern. I joined Wikipedia as a senior at Hopkins School and became an admin in early June 2006. I have a variety of interests including baseball, sabermetrics, bluegrass music, and port wine. I graduated with a BA in Political Science from the University of Connecticut in 2010 and I earned a JD from University of Connecticut School of Law in 2013. I am a member of the Connecticut, U.S. District of Connecticut, and 2nd Circuit bar associations.

I try to remain an active Wikipedian, though sometimes the pressures of the real world make that less likely. Given my editing tendancies I would consider myself a WikiOgre, though I've collected quite a healthy edit count. Somebody even called me a champion once.

Please check out my Photo Gallery!



Mound of Butter
Mound of Butter is a painting by the French realist painter Antoine Vollon completed between 1875 and 1885. A still life, it depicts a mound of butter, coloured in rich, deep yellow, with thick marks after the artist's brushwork that may be intended to suggest the marks of a butter knife. The painting is held at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.Painting: Antoine Vollon (image courtesy of the National Gallery of Art)
