Hi! My name is Chris Ducat. I live in Massachusetts. As of this moment, I would say I've been a member of Wikipedia for quite some time (April 2004). At the time Wikipedia seemed huge, but it had 250,000 articles, compared to the 5 million+ today! I haven't done too much editing, although I have started some pretty major articles. Here's some stuff I've done so far (updated not as often as it should be):

Nelly Martyl
Nelly Martyl (1 April 1884 – 9 November 1953) was a French opera singer based in Paris who participated in several world premieres. After making her professional debut in 1907 in Gluck's Armide, she joined the Opéra-Comique, where she appeared as Micaela in Bizet's Carmen, Sophie in Massenet's Werther, Mimi in Puccini's La bohème and in the title role of Massenet's Manon, among others. During World War I and the 1918 flu epidemic, she worked as a nurse and received the Croix de Guerre for her service. After the war, she created a charitable medical foundation with automobile racer Magdeleine Goüin. This photograph of Martyl was taken by the French photographer Jean Reutlinger, probably between 1907 and 1912.Photograph credit: Jean Reutlinger; restored by Adam Cuerden
