About me:


I'm a 30 something Wikimedian who has been on the projects for almost 10 years. Before starting to work for the foundation I focused on cross-wiki vandalism and abuse as a volunteer as well as working on the volunteer response team answering emails and phone messages sent in from the public. In the course of that work I gained the communities confidence enough to be elected as an Administrator on this wiki and others as well as a Global administrator. Now I diddle around (both logged in and logged out) fixing articles and fighting vandalism as I have time.

If you want to know more about me I've written more on my Other user page (staff) or feel free to email me!
