Biography

I don't have any tattoos, but if/when I do get one, it'll be Bugs Bunny.

I'm Nelson Ricardo. My parents immigrated to the U.S. from a small farming village in the municipality of Caldas da Rainha, Portugal. I was born and raised in Yonkers, Westchester County, New York, and have been living in Brooklyn for 20 years. I have a B.A. in economics from New York University (NYU). I have worked at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and at Columbia University.

I won't say how old I am, but the 1980s had the best music.

Like most people, I started out on Wikipedia, but I now spend most of my time at Wikivoyage.

Background regarding username change

When I first created my Wikipedia account many moons ago, there were more limitations on usernames, so I ended up with Nricardo. I think I had typed it as nricardo, but the system decided that the first letter needed to be uppercase. Having an uppercase N but lowercase r has always bothered me. I tried changing it to my real name, but a steward at Meta decided that it was too close to an existing username, so I added some non-random numbers at the end.
