Hi, I'm ɱ.

Although I often perform a wide variety of tasks, I prefer content creation, research, and photography. I joined Wikipedia on June 27, 2009.

Feel free to email me at ematwikipedia@gmail.com or let me know if you want to talk over skype, telegram, discord, or slack.

my work: contributions, edit count

I am active on Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, and enjoy documenting and photographing every part of a place I visit or live in or near, including areas of the American Northeast, Midwest, California, and the South. While living near New York City from about 2012 to 2018, I was also a regular attendee, presenter, organizer, or volunteer at chapter and national/international events. I currently live in urban Ohio.

I have good experience dealing with financially conflicted editors, editing and approving their works, all prior to 2014. The only live work I was paid for was in 2014/16: Interactive Brokers and Thomas Peterffy, where I wrote drafts and requested edits; here's more information. About 99.978% of my edits are as a volunteer. Since then, I have been actively committed to maintaining WP:COI across Wikipedia, reporting undisclosed editors, reverting promotional edits, and nominating promotional articles for deletion.

Briarcliff Manor-Scarborough Historical Society
From 2013 to 2016, with intermittent work from 2016 to July 20, 2018, I was a volunteer Wikipedian in Residence at the Briarcliff Manor-Scarborough Historical Society. I worked with other volunteers in this nonprofit organization to facilitate improvement of Wikipedia entries related to the institution's mission, to encourage and assist it to release much of its material under open licenses, and to develop the relationship between the institution and the Wikimedia community.

Century Association Archives Foundation
From August 2017–early 2018, I worked with the Century Association Archives Foundation. I worked with archivists in this nonprofit to likewise facilitate improvement of Wikipedia entries related to the institution's mission, to encourage and assist it to release much of its material under open licenses, and to develop the relationship between the institution and the Wikimedia community. My work was funded by the foundation, which maintains a publicly accessible archive within the Century Association's top floor. The Archives Foundation strives for neutral and encyclopedic accounts of the Association, its history, and its members.

Briarcliff Manor project

Miscellaneous Briarcliff Manor wiki projects I've decided to do - the Wikivoyage and Wiktionary pages, stubs of the main article for other language Wikipedias, its portal, book, navbox, categories and subcategories on Commons and this Wikipedia, a Commons gallery, and a comprehensive image repository of self-taken and historical society archival images, found in the Common category and its subcategories. I also organized a Wikipedia event in Briarcliff in August 2014, though the event topic was Westchester County, not the village.
