I'm pretty busy with life these days. I check back regularly, and still edit to some degree, but not as regularly as I used to. This is subject to change with life being a little more permitting. Thanks.

I may, from time to time, edit under a separate IP address:

I'm a medical student from Nottingham, United Kingdom. After studying biology, chemistry and physics at A level, I went on to study biomedical science. After that, I entered into a graduate-entry medical degree. I'm an agnostic atheist formerly raised as a Christian. In my little spare time outside of medicine, I enjoy music and photography. In the past I practiced parkour, but gave up when my knee gave way. I enjoy reading, but mostly books that no one else would enjoy...


Wikipedia Rollback.png This user has rollback, account creator and autoreviewer rights on the English Wikipedia. (verify) Wikipedia Accountcreators.png
Wikimedia-logo.png This user is a donor to the Wikimedia Foundation. You can be one, too.
Fake Admin mop.PNG This user acts like an administrator on the English Wikipedia but really isn't one.
wiki-4 This user is an expert Wikipedia editor.
AW This user's Awesome Wikipedian day is June 5th.
1.3 This user has 1.3 centijimbos.

My main interest on Wikipedia is editing, specifically those relating to WikiProject Medicine (such as Transverse myelitis, which is the current collaboration of the week) and other related wikiprojects. Secondly, I enjoy participating in areas including but not limited to requests for adminship, articles for deletion and criteria for speedy deletion. Finally, I'm always up for helping to review an article or editor so just get in touch if you want me to have a look at you or your article!

I enjoy vandal fighting using the Twinkle and Vandal Fighter applications. I use AutoWikiBrowser to repair several articles at a time, too. I am one of 5,852 who have been given the rollback feature (verify), as well as one of the 149 with the ACC flag. Finally I am one of 3,824 with the autoreviewer flag. Given the chance, I patrol the new users section to give them a nice, friendly welcome. On that note, I'm also up for providing adoption too! I'm also the creator and maintainer of Neurology Task Force (a subset of WikiProject Medicine), despite it's somewhat inactivity lately. I've got a unified account which can be used on any of the Wikimedia sites.

Here are my milestone edits: 1st edit, 1000th edit, 2500th edit, 5000th edit.

My watchlist[edit]

If an article is listed here, it means I have in some way edited it and then added it to my watchlist. Please note I was not, for the most part, involved in getting these articles to their current class if they are FA or GA; however, I have helped in the promotion of some articles listed here. Enquire for more information :)
