I am a Sheffield Wednesday fan who is originally from South Yorkshire, but is currently living in Cheshire (both in England).

My main area of interest is football and primarily Sheffield Wednesday, although I have also contributed to various other pages related to sport, Sheffield and South Yorkshire in general. I was one of two or three Wikipedians who were instrumental in helping Sheffield Wednesday F.C. attain featured article status.

After a long Wikibreak I now edit Wikipedia fairly infrequently. When I do, I am currently working on expanding List of Sheffield Wednesday F.C. players and ensuring that each player has their own article or stub as well as helping to maintain football articles in my watchlist and attempting to tag and assess all related articles for the WikiProject on Sheffield Wednesday. I also use AWB to perform minor edits on articles in various categories.
