I am a member of the Cherokee Nation, from northeast Oklahoma. I was born in the mid 1970's, and grew up in Oklahoma, to the age of twelve, and spent part of my teenage years in the Philippines, graduating from high school at the age of eighteen. I subsequently attended Rogers State University. My interests are fairly broad, and I have done considerable reading and research on the history of musical instruments and of origami.
I've been a participant in Wikipedia, having made many contributions, as an author, an illustrator, an editor and as a researcher/uploader of illustrations from public domain works. My user page there is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Aaron_Walden .
