My name is Jeffery Nichols and I am an editor currently living in Edmonton, Canada. I have been a Wikipedian since April 2005 and an administrator on the English language Wikipedia since May 2007. I spent five years as the secretary and a board member of Wikimedia Canada. I hold a bachelor's degree in Canadian studies, masters degrees in political science and public administration, and a Juris Doctor degree.

Most of my edits are about Canadian politics, history, and culture (wikiprojects WP:PPAP & WP:GOC). I used to spend a lot of time establishing featured topics, but real life responsibilities have kept me from being a full-time worker there. I have written a few templates that seem to be working, notably ones related to Canadian election results. I have dabbled in edits outside of the encyclopedia, mostly Wiktionary and Commons.

If you have any questions, please visit my talk page. Cheers.
