Welcome to my User Page. I joined the efforts of Wikipedia on September 2, 2013, and am an experienced journalist, writer, and writing teacher, though am no longer very active.

My participation and contributions to Wikipedia are completely voluntary. I have not received any compensation for my efforts. Additionally, I am not connected by family or employment relationships with any of the articles that I edit.

Wiki Outlook and Experiences[edit]

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, By the Seashore, 1883
Claude Monet, Coquelicots, La promenade (Poppies), 1873, Musée d'Orsay, Paris

I've had some good experiences in creating articles, though I've also had some experiences with articles that could have been improved if editors would be more considerate of each other.

Like Solarra, I find it amazing that you were not only able to keep yourself calm in light of persistent personal attacks and harassment, but also adhere to wikipedia standards the entire time, better than I or most others could have done. Perhaps I'm getting a bit naggy with these multiple posts on your talk page (lol, 2), but I'd feel bad if I didn't give one after watching the whole thing occur, so congratulations and thanks for consistently improving wikipedia!

Thank you for the barnstar! I have indeed been through a lot, and I was just writing my resignation from Wikipedia when I received your barnstar. So now I will call it a break.
