Hi. I'm Marcus. I am an undergraduate studying German and History at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. I am a visual journalist and a reporter for The College Fix, Photography is Not a Crime and Heat Street. I love disruptive technology and I help write about startups that are doing cool things.

My interests on Wikipedia consist of ground combat vehicle technologies, aerial warfare, Pentagon acquisitions and U.S. military actions abroad.

I've been to six St. Louis-area meetups and to Wikimania 2012 in Washington, D.C. I was the St. Louis representative for the now semi-defunct Wikimedia United States Coalition. I remain a contact for the St. Louis region and WikiProject Missouri.
