My name is Richard Lawrence. I created a userid as of July 10, 2005, although I contributed a few edits anonymously prior to that. I became an administrator on the English Wikipedia on December 25, 2009 (local time). As of January 2015, I perform administrator tasks occasionally but not frequently.

I also have an alternative account under User:NATE Account, which is used exclusively for testing.

As of January 2015, my most frequent areas of editing are around the following topics:

  • Ayn Rand, her writings and ideas, as well as related people and organizations
  • Late 19th and early 20th century theater, mostly the creation and expansion of articles about plays, writers, and actors

Outside of Wikipedia, I have a long-neglected website about Rand and her philosophy of Objectivism. There have been (and may still be) links to my site in some articles, but with one exception (discussed beforehand on the relevant talk page), I did not place them there.
