Welcome to the userpage of Steven Fruitsmaak!

...although that is not my real name, just a copyrighted internet pseudonym. I first edited Wikipedia in April 2005 while studying medicine. I began to be more active one year later. I live in Leuven, Belgium.

I partially shifted my attention from Wikipedia to Wikinews after I met the friendly Wikinews community and decided that it could use more improvement than Wikipedia. I became an admin on Wikinews on October 17, 2006 and an accredited reporter on March 4, 2007. I became an admin on Wikipedia on July 26, 2008.

I recently graduated as a medical doctor and started training as a specialist in internal medicine. If you need me, you can e-mail me and I'll be glad to help out.

You can find out some of my skills in my userboxes. Finally, my motto is:

Non scholae, sed vitae discimus.

Enjoy Wikipedia!

Some things I am particularly proud of:

Here's the full list of articles I created.
