From Wikivoyage
Jump to: navigation, search

Greetings. My name is André Carrotflower. I got my start at the old site, as many of us did, and now I am pleased to be here on Wikivoyage.

"André" is a Gallicization of my given name, Andrew—language, and the French language in particular, is my area of academic study. I use "Carrotflower" in homage to the following: [1].

I'm a native of Williamsville, New York who currently resides in the Lower West Side of Buffalo. In my spare time, I am also an amateur photographer; some of my work can be found gracing the pages to which I've contributed.

I've visited 36 of the 50 states of the USA plus the District of Columbia, and six Canadian provinces. I consider Québec my second home.

Current and Upcoming Wikivoyage Projects

  • Districting the Buffalo, New York article into seven districts—currently in progress and nearing completion.
  • Writing articles for Buffalo's six inner-ring suburbs—articles currently exist, but in outline form; work will begin in earnest after completion of the above.
  • Translating the articles for which I am a Docent into French and Spanish for fr: and es:—these are low-priority projects that I will most likely not begin on until after the above two are complete.
  • Writing itineraries for self-guided tours through some of Buffalo's more interesting neighborhoods, such as downtown, Elevator Alley, Allentown, and the Delaware District—generally a low-priority project, but Historic Churches of Buffalo's East Side is currently in progress and will be completed in tandem with the closely linked East Side district article, hopefully before June 1, 2015.
  • Merging translated information from fr:Gaspésie into Gaspé Peninsula with an eye to featuring the latter as OtBP—in progress, goal for completion is summer 2016.

Future Travel Plans

I am the docent of the Wikivoyage articles on Buffalo, New York (and its districts) and Clarence, New York, with more to come in the future. In addition to this, I have a good working knowledge of the Niagara Frontier region of New York State (in particular Erie and Niagara Counties), the Regional Municipality of Niagara in Ontario, and (of course) Québec. Any fellow Wikivoyagers who need information or assistance on these topics are encouraged to leave me a message on my Talk page.
