My name is Jordan. I live in Los Angeles, California. I have a dog named Baxter.

Who am I?[edit]

I’m a gemini, so I’m always of two minds about everything. It’s hard to make generalizations about me. Most people would call me a radical liberal, with my ideals falling somewhere in the realm of utopian or democratic socialism. Though, I have some strange ideas about right-ish government ideals.

I graduated from Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas (”a surprisingly liberal college in the heart of Arkansas…”) but I also did time at SUNY Fredonia in Fredonia, New York, and Loyola University of Chicago.

I am the creator and "chairperson" of a Star Trek RPG that is celebrated it's 15th anniversary of creation in 2009. The name of the RPG is "UFOP: StarBase 118" and our homepage is at

I have an entrepreneurial spirit, but a career in the corporate world. I couldn’t live without my TiVo. I eat way too much junk food. I never work out (anymore). People who chew with their mouth open or make any kind of noise while eating make me homicidal. I will always tell you when you have something stuck to your face or hanging out of your nose.

How did I get here?[edit]

I don't remember! I think I read about Wikipedia somewhere on the net sometime in 2003, and have been using it for general reference ever since. In March of 2004, I started getting heavily into the process of editing/creation.

What am I doing here?[edit]

Usually I'm wasting time.

I enjoy maintenance-type work, like adopting pages, merging pages, and un-deadending pages.

I'm also starting a write-up about a possible project to educate people in Academia about Wikipedia.

Pages I've Created[edit]

I tend to not create pages (as I enjoy maintaining more), but every now and again the fancy strikes me. Here's the list of pages I've created, with the newest at the top:

My Favorite Quotes[edit]

  • "As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities." ~ Voltaire
  • "It is never too late to give up your prejudices." ~ from Walden by Henry David Thoreau
  • "I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own -- a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty.

  • "Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things." ~ Peter Drucker
  • "Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
  • "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve." ~ J. R. R. Tolkien
  • "Someday I want to be rich. Some people get so rich they lose all respect for humanity. That's how rich I want to be." ~ Rita Rudner
