I have been editing on Wikipedia since May 3rd, 2008. I mostly correct bad spelling and hideous grammar, although I might work on other articles that interest me. I receive no help or inspiration from Star Wars characters.

I am a firm believer in using language to convey information and if I find something that doesn't inform me, I will change it.
