From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

An Australian living in Sydney, and frequently travelling the world at large. Professionally I am a data architect - I design systems to handle data management within large corporations. My education is as a medical doctor. Prior to that I was a professional guitarist in the USA. You figure it out.

Old-timer status: I was involved in the initial discussions for the creation of Meta. I'm Meta user #3. I'm Wikipedia user #100, because they switched the new software on when I was asleep and 99 people had already registered before I got there. I've been on Wikipedia since the middle of 2001. I created the Wikiproject concept, as well as introduced the very first "Votes For Deletion" concept (then known as 'page titles to be deleted").
