I'm Nate - my username here and in OSM is my real name. I grew up in the suburbs around Massillon/Canton, Ohio before moving to Cincinnati for undergrad. In 2015 I moved to Toronto, Ontario where I've been living since. I've spent a good chunk of my life studying urban planning and GIS and consider myself in particular a transport planner/researcher/enthusiast.
I use OSM as a source of data for various cartographic projects (e.g. the Cincinnati Bike Map) and for research. About half of my editing is in support of those projects and half the result some latent nervous energy combined with a compulsion to fix things that are not yet perfect.
