Hello there! I'm Ed, a graduate student at East Carolina University and an editor on Wikipedia since March 2006. On this site, I have been a site-wide administrator since September 2009 and editor-in-chief of the Signpost, a Wikimedia-focused community newspaper, since May 2012. I was also a coordinator of the Military History Project from November 2008 to September 2014 and the co-editor of the Bugle, a monthly newsletter of the project, from November 2010 to September 2012.

Aside from these hats, much of my Wikipedia time has been spent writing. My initial work was related to the Shannara universe, but since late 2008 I have focused on early-twentieth-century warships from Europe, Japan, and both Americas, with a particular interest in the South American dreadnought race that gripped Argentina, Brazil, and Chile from c. 1907 to 1914. In total, I have written or assisted in crafting twenty-five featured and eleven A-class or good articles, a list of which is here. Most have furthered the goals of a long-term collaborative project, Operation Majestic Titan, which will see all battleship and battlecruiser articles rewritten and combined into a single featured topic.
