To brighten your day... or perhaps

What I do:
Currently, my main work lies in topics related to Western classical music and Western art. In these I focus on early music composers and topics since they receive far less attention than those of the common practice and 20th-century, (e.g. compare Machaut and Wagner's articles); and Italian Renaissance art, especially works by Leonardo (no noble reason for that, I'm afraid). Having interests in Chinese history, Byzantine music, women in classical music and ukiyo-e art, I hope to work more in these topics in the future, in part to counter the apparent systemic bias of my current focus. I enjoy working on lists in addition to articles, as I believe many lists of compositions, operas, art and composers deserve far more attention.

Editing philosophy:
My main "editing philosophy" is to focus on quality over quantity. This is why you will almost never see me substantially expand or edit an article I don't plan to eventually bring to FA, GA or FL.

Non-content creation:
On the non-content creation side of things, I'm a delegate at the featured and good topic candidates process. I strongly advocate reviewing in addition to content creating, and I regularly participate at FAC, FLC, PR and occasionally GAN. This often includes doing source reviews to keep the process moving; in FLC specifically, I do the vast majority of them. If you ever need/want a review for FAC, FLC, PR (content or source), please do not hesitate to reach out!
