I enjoy doing a number of things around the wiki. I do work for the Mediation Cabal, work on articles that I come across (if I have reliable sources, that is), wikignome from time to time, and participate in deletion and policy discussions. I am a member of WikiProject LGBT studies and serve as the current coordinator of WikiProject Star Wars. In January 2010 I became a Coordinator of the Mediation Cabal, and in March 2010 I became an Administrator on the English Wikipedia. Currently, most of my work on-wiki is split between participating in policy discussions (for example, I was heavily involved in the formation of WP:BLPPROD) and maintaining assorted administrative backlogs when they are in need of attention.

In addition, I enjoy taking pictures and uploading them to Wikimedia Commons. Images that I upload can be seen in the galleries below. Astrophotography is something of a new hobby for me.

As far as inclusionist/deletionist philosophy, I belong to the Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgements About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are In Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They are Deletionist

I also have a blog!
