|I'm going to be on a Wikibreak until the 16th May due to needing to buckle down and focus on my final year dissertation. I will rarely be on Wikipedia and am turning off talk page notification emails; if you need me for anything of importance please drop me an email directly. If something needs my attention and it isn't immediately important please leave me a note and I'll check it out when I return.|

My name's Sam and I'm currently an astrophysics student in the UK. On Wikipedia my edits are primarily to video game and scientist biography articles, you can find a list of the articles I've created or done any major work on below. Besides those topics I edit assorted articles which take my interest. As an admin I tend to work at AfD, CSD, and on Edit Filters. Since the start of this year I have been volunteer metrics coordinator for The Wikipedia Library.
If you want to ask me a question or otherwise speak to me please feel free to post on my talk page. If you think there is an obvious (policy based!) reason to revert an admin action I've taken then go ahead - don't feel required to notify me first, just let me know you've done so.
I have access to the University of Liverpool's library and other libraries around the Liverpool area, feel free to ask if you'd like me to find something for you.
