- I joined Wikipedia in March 2004.
- I'm an administrator, both here and on the Swahili Wikipedia (although I don't spend a great deal of time on admin tasks).
- While I like to read all sorts of articles on Wikipedia, when editing I tend to do a lot of work on cryptography articles.
- I'd like to edit more on Africa topics.
- I'm a participant in WikiProject Cryptography; see also the Crypto WikiPortal.
- I write a blog on cryptography.
- I'm a big fan of the No personal attacks and Civility policies. I subscribe to the editing style of the Harmonious editing club. I'm a member of the Association of Apathetic Wikipedians. Update: I'm experiencing mergist leanings of late.

- I'm an occasional maintainer of Category:Fictional chickens.
