I am a New Orleanian who started contributing to Wikipedia in September of 2002, became an Administrator in February of 2003, and last time I checked was just in the top 20 most active Wikipedians.

I've made many contributions to some of my favorite subjects: early jazz, New Orleans, and MesoAmerican archaeology. I've been making good use of my knowledge of minutia of early 20th century culture. I've made some contributions conserning geography and history of Latin America, particularly the areas of the Yucatan and northern Central America where I lived for a while. I contributed the majority of the States of Mexico articles, though at writing many have not yet expanded beyond minimal stub status. I've been working on improving the pages related to the List of musical events and the List of record labels.

I've been doing fair amount on painters and art styles. I feel rather underqualified for some of this (I'm just a guy who likes lookin' at the purty pictures), but hope what I've done will be a usefull start to later Wikipedians. I think I cobbled some decent entries on, for example, Alfons Mucha and Salvador Dali.

A few of my early contributions were made before I became a logged-in user.

Articles I started &/or made significant contributions to include:

I was also responsible for adding candidates to U.S. presidential election (it previously gave the impression that there always have been and could only be two candidates per election), and contributed the Perceptions of Columbus section to the contentious Christopher Columbus page. I've helped improve the Louis Armstrong page (which still needs more work). I explained what the phrase Honky tonk meant before it was applied to faux-hillbilly pop music. I also did the Amos & Andy article. Someone had to.

I've scanned and uploaded some 19th century and early 20th century images from my collection to illustrate such articles as Emilio Aguinaldo, John James Audubon, Clara Barton, Enrico Caruso, Pablo Casals, Cicero, Georges Clemenceau, Columbia, Stephen Crane, Joaquín Crespo, Diana, Porfirio Diaz, Dodge, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Fountain pen. Giuseppe Garibaldi, Giza, Alexander Glazunov, Mikhail Glinka, Ketch, Horatio Kitchener, Li Hung Chang, Franz Liszt, David Lloyd George, Carole Lombard, London Bridge, Louisiana Purchase Exposition, James Russell Lowell, Maria White Lowell, Myrna Loy, Erich Ludendorff, Francisco I. Madero, Nellie Melba, John Stuart Mill, Modest Mussorgsky, New York Public Library, Original Dixieland Jass Band, Palace of Westminster, Anna Pavlova, Pedro II of Brazil, Phonograph cylinder, Mary Pickford, Sergei Rachmaninov, Rambler, Reo, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Maximilien Robespierre, Anton Rubinstein, San Francisco earthquake of 1906, Studebaker, Alexis de Tocqueville, USS Brooklyn, Victor Emmanuel II of Italy, White House, Woodrow Wilson, World Columbian Exposition, Emiliano Zapata, and others. I've also have uploaded some photos I've taken myself.

Yes, I know, my spelling sucks. Sorry. (Believe it or not, its much improved from what it was a few years ago.)
