I am engineer and specialized in nuclear power plants safety. My main hobby is the collection of classic stamps, especially from the "Deutsches Reich" and the KK Austria-Hungary monarchy, with emphasis on the origin of the cancellations. I have developped databases for this purpose. 13 May 2012 - 20 Oct 2013

My grandfather was a landscape painter, and this reflects in the way I compose pictures.

I am autopatrolled since 1 November 2012.

I have studied the concept of thesaurus in order to manage documentation softwares. Hence my interest in the categories and links between them. I try to apply those concepts in the Wikimedia art media, architecture categories. I work a lot in identifying more precise, defined categories. For example, many do not distinguish between door, gate, doorway, portal.. normal, if those words are not defined!

I have a problem with the catageory ;; by city, undefined, in violation with the needed hierarchy by location, etc (2016).

Philatelic Galleries created[edit]

Since December 2014, I was very active on the Stamps of the World (SOTW) wiki. But in July 2016, I reduced uploads further to a lack of consistently applied policy for used stamps (confusion with clear postmarks), and unwiki attitude of a too powerful user.
