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 am currently 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; I am especially fond of lists about these topics. 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 adding Canadian English words to Wiktionary, translating my articles to French Wikipedia, and working on the wiki of Wikimedia Canada.

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