I am a male living in Brisbane, Australia. I hold a Bachelor of Arts (Geography, Political Science) from the University of Queensland. I started editing Wikipedia semi-regularly in mid 2004. Photos which I have uploaded are available at Wikicommons.

Wikipedia has become one of the best examples of a successful open source project. I'm regularly impressed by the quality of material and the kind effort put in by other Wikipedians to get things right for little in return. Wikipedia is a great, worthwhile site, verging on brilliant, especially when one considers it is being created by unpaid amateurs. I am glad I have been part of what has been described as[1]

I like researching and fixing up articles, some project work, adding a few photos, items to lists and fleshing out short articles. I am also putting in some work at Wikimedia Commons and maintaining the Queensland Portal.
