Hello, I'm ComputerJA (born 1990s), a Wikipedian and news blogger based in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, a city on the U.S.-Mexico border. Most of my work on Wikipedia is concentrated on articles related to the Mexican Drug War, a topic I've studied for many years. I'm also a participant of WikiProject Mexico, a project dedicated to improve articles related to Mexico, and a recipient of the Editor of the Week award. With over 26,000 edits and 310 articles created, I'm one of Wikipedia's 5,000 most active members.

I officially registered on Wikipedia on June 19, 2011, although I did minor editing as an IP user long before joining. I cannot remember the exact reason why I joined Wikipedia. But I think it may have something to do with my interest in researching about Mexico. Though I usually write about the Mexican Drug War, I occasionally hop into other projects related to Mexico, so feel free to get in touch with me if you believe I'll be interested. Chances are that I'll be interested in your topic if it has anything to do with my home country!

A little bit about myself: I grew up and have lived in Mexico for most of my life. After high school, I attended the University of Texas at Austin. Upon graduation, I returned to work in Mexico. Like you've probably figured out by now, I'm interested in pretty much anything related to Mexico. Though my edits on Wikipedia do not reflect this at all, I love the beautiful game, and I'm a big martial arts and fight enthusiast. Outside of Wikipedia, I am active at the forum of Borderland Beat, an English-language news blog that reports about violence in Mexico.

If you wish to contact me about stuff related to Wikipedia, please visit my talk page. If you wish to contact me via email, please feel free to do so here. Only registered Wikipedia users can use the email system, however, so make sure to create an account if you do not have one (it's very easy, don't worry). Just let me know on my talk page when you send me an email. I do not check my Wikipedia email regularly but I log-on here every day.
