About meEdit

Interested parties may wish to visit my website, Gyrofrog Communications.

In January 2012, I completed a Wikipedia Signpost interview about WikiProject Jazz.

Some articles I've startedEdit

Many of these involved little effort on my part. This is more of an indicator as to where my interests lie, in case anyone's curious.
