From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Welcome to my userpage. I hope you like my contributions. Before I say anything else:

This user tries to do the right thing. If they make a mistake, please let them know.


Most of my contributions are on global governance and politics, politicians and elections in developing democracies - particularly in the Middle East and Africa. This is driven by a personal interest in political science, rather than any particular expertise or interest in a particular region of the world. If you feel that my edits are biased or non-neutral in any way please let me know.


I work in financial services and I also contribute in this area. I do not undertake paid editing or edit any articles connected to my employer. Some of my contributions may concern people who have worked at the same company that I have. If you feel that any edits I make are biased, conflicted or otherwise problematic please let me know on my talkpage or through email.

Baha'i Faith[edit]

I was previously a follower of the Baha'i Faith. Although I do now occasionally contribute to the Baha'i pages on wikipedia, I am still largely reticent. Most of the published secondary source information has been produced in by Baha'is themselves or by enemies setting out to discredit the Baha'i Faith. Therefore I think it is impossible to create accurate, fair neutral articles whilst still adhering to the policies on No Original Research.
