Take your pick.

In 2009, I took on the role of spearheading a project to collect a history of TORn. There have been many contributors to the project but I remain the project manager and primary researcher and contributor.

When I'm not working on TORn history, I might be working on the LOTR Soundtrack for my website, "A Magpie's Nest" or family history or genealogy. Researching is in my dna. So is archiving and researching people's stories.
