Andrew Philip Cross (born 1963) is a British-based Wikipedian. I have modified or created pages relating to art, film, jazz, literature, the media and the social sciences.

Wikipedia's 16 March 2016 Signpost newsletter touched on an important issue raised by Craig Murray concerning my activities on this site: "Is GCHQ Embedded in Wikipedia?" Neither the Wikipedia article, nor Murray's blog post from a few days before, came to any firm conclusion as to whether this is so. George Galloway tweeted on 16 August 2016 about me: "But who is he? Why is he on our case? And for whom?"[1]

Everyone can contact me via email, see the toolbox on the left, or via twitter @philipcross63. Despite the regular assertions of a small number of conspiracy theorists on the web, I edit Wikipedia under my real name. Nor am I paid to edit this project, a practice which I am strongly against. Any claim about my name being an alias is entirely false.
