Welcome to my user page on Wikipedia. I have shared some information about myself and my interests on Wikipedia.

(My Talk)(My Contributions)(My Sandbox)


My primary areas of focus on Wikipedia over the last few years have been private equity, finance and companies. These are not the most active areas of the project. I work in Finance which potentially explains the interest (although maybe not why I spend time on Wikipedia. I started the Private Equity Task Force to focus the efforts of interested Wikipedians on this area. I have worked on creating new content around private equity investors and private equity firms More recently, I have been working on defunct but historically notable financial institutions. I have been trying to populate the list of former investment banks.

My signature over time[edit]

When I made my first edits on Wikipedia, I picked a name based on a book I was reading at the time. I didn't have any idea that I would still be using this name years later. But I like it and I am going to stick with it...
