Greetings. Thanks for dropping by my user page. I am Bloom6132, or "Bloom" for short. I made my first edit on Wikipedia on March 30, 2010 and have made more than 18,600 contributions since then. The majority of my contributions are focused towards baseball, cathedrals and churches, and (to a lesser extent) tennis and association football – but I edit just about any topic as reflected in my featured lists, good articles, and DYKs. I am a two-time finalist of the WikiCup (2014 and 2017), and took semi-retirement hiatuses from editing in 2015–16 and in 2018–19.

I grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, and I presently reside there. My sporting allegiances are to the Vancouver Canucks – my hometown team – the New York Yankees in baseball, Manchester United F.C. in football, and Roger Federer in tennis. Lastly (and most importantly), I always adhere to the Golden Rule when interacting with my fellow users, so I ask that you likewise do so. Cheers!
