Hi, welcome to my user page. I go by the pseudonym Parsa as my username just about everywhere.

My main English Wikipedia user page is here.

I have a wide range of interests, and since I'm an educator, Wikipedia gives me a good outlet for teaching myself and helping others. I have a degree in physics and astronomy. I have many interests and am an ardent, life-long autodidact. I have interests in art, printmaking, papermaking, astronomy, religion, transportation history and archeology, cartography, electronic music and synthesizer electronics.

Articles I'd like to work on[edit]

  • w:Hanafuda - I'd like to work on this article to add photos, correct grammar, and add content. As an artist, I'm particularly interested in the symbolism of the cards and how it relates to Japanese and Chinese cultural imagery.
  • The Baha'i Faith and w:Babism - There are several stub articles in this category I'd like to work on, especially those related to Baha'i history. One that I'm particularly looking at is the article on the Conference of Badasht. It seems way too sketchy, and gives an incomplete picture of the event.
  • Various articles in the U.S. Highways WikiProject, especially U.S. Route 80 and several of the auto trails.
