Greetings, friends.

I am the American Nomad. I got my start here making the occasional contribution to articles back on the old WikiTravel site, before making the move to Wikivoyage. My travel focus is on regional U.S. travel, primarily in Louisiana and the south central United States, but will occasionally contribute to articles in California, Nevada, and Arizona, as well as international articles in Africa, Asia, Central America, and Europe.

I believe that travel knowledge is something that should be shared by all and am fully supportive of the Wikivoyage mission to collaborate, disseminate, and share knowledge of travel destinations to the world!


  • Adding to articles that have little to no content, especially outside of heavily visited areas.
  • Drawing attention to the rural areas of the United States.
  • Adding Mapshapes to dynamic maps in Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas.
  • Building up all articles in Northern Louisiana to Usable or Guide status.

Areas of travelEdit

Areas of contribution to the Wikivoyage project are in bold.

Planned / WishlistEdit

Priority destinations in bold.


In addition to contributing where I can to Wikivoyage, I am also the Docent for the page on the historic town of Mansfield, Louisiana. What this means is that if you have questions on this town or the general area, and the questions are not answered by what is on the page, I am more than happy to help answer those questions. If you have any questions, please direct them to my talk page and I will do my best to answer them! If you are curious about what a Docent does, please check this link here.
