Hey there — I'm Kevin, a 23-year-old Wikipedia editor currently living in Dallas, Texas, United States. I'm originally from Ohio, where I founded the Ohio Wikimedians User Group. I currently work as a software engineer after graduating from The Ohio State University.
I created my account here on Wikipedia in September of 2007, though I didn't start contributing until 2008. I was pretty young when I first started editing, and Wikipedia has been a pretty big part of my internet experience growing up. I've loved the project and its editors from the start, and try to contribute in my free time.
On Wikipedia, I tend to jump around different areas. You'll most commonly find me here:
- Recent edits and new page patrol.
- Reviewing articles for creation.
- Helping out at the Teahouse and help desk, among other places.
- File licensing.
- Occasional photography, for which you'll find my contributions over at the Commons.
At the moment, I have access to the rollback, reviewing, and file moving toolsets. I'm also a part of the Volunteer Response Team. I also created Wikipedia Connection, a student organization at Ohio State focused on bringing students interested in Wikipedia together. I try to help out with Education Program classes when I can.
If you would like to contact me, I am available on my talk page or through email. I'm happy to answer questions, provide help, or anything else, really. I check both my talk page and email every day, so a response can be expected fairly quickly from either one.
I edit all Wikimedia projects under the username of "SuperHamster", except for the Wikimedia Commons, in which I edit under my real name, Kevin Payravi. You'll also find me on other non-Wikimedia wikis as SuperHamster. I'm currently active withing the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance wikis.
