Greetings! I have several interests including United States politics, United States and Pennsylvania history, astronomy, spaceflight history, medicine and geology. I do not limit myself to these, however, and one can expect to find me editing in a multitude of areas, from baseball to classic rock, and many others in between.

I've been here since November 2008 but didn't get extensively involved until about mid-2010. Most of the work I do here on Wikipedia is of the low-key variety: copyediting articles, working at UAA/AIV/CSD, various routine maintenance, categorizing stubs, documenting historical U.S. elections, and contributing to articles covering a multitude of subjects that interest me. I became an administrator in July 2011 (verify) and use the tools mostly in the background to keep things running smoothly wherever I can. If you need my assistance or have a question, my talk page is always open.

I thought a minute ago, after you beat me to a revert 4 times in a row, "If this guy beats me one more time, I'm gonna have to start throwing stars!"...I hope I didn't hit you in the head ;). Keep it up! 2D ℳaestro Dribble/Scribble 01:15, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

In recognition of your excellent work in creating the Barry Goldwater presidential campaign, 1964 article. Great job in supplying extensive well-written, reliably sourced content; superbly formatted and illustrated as well. Bravo!! JayJasper (talk) 21:46, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

My reviewer request has been accepted, and this was not possible without your support, guidance and tips. So I bought Pakistani "Bal Sweet" for you! Come to Pakistan if you like it, We will welcome you! Faizan (talk) 19:20, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

You were far from the only editor to leave me a kind note when I announced my retirement, but I have to say that your comments were probably the most appreciated. Your words were very kind, and they meant a lot seeing as I don't believe we have interacted much during my time here. To discover that you have a positive impression of me was quite a pleasant surprise. Thank you. AutomaticStrikeout (TCSign AAPT) 02:41, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
Gold Medal.svg Good as gold!
In considering possible recipients for my Golden Editor Award, I remembered you. Specifically, I recalled the kind words you posted on my talk page several months ago. As noted in a section higher up on this page, the message you left for me at that time was very much appreciated. While the Golden Editor Award is a kind of lifetime achievement award that would not necessarily be awarded for a single act of kindness, your userpage shows that you have a respectable resume of content work. Based on my observations and my prior interaction with you, I happy to present you with this award. Happy editing! AutomaticStrikeout  ?  19:40, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
