I recently completed a legal internship for the Wikimedia Foundation, and am a member of the Communications Committee, an OTRS representative on the legal queue, and an English Wikipedia administrator. I also edit Wikiversity, Meta, Wikimedia Commons, OTRS Coordination Wiki, Wikimedia Foundation Wiki, and sometimes Wikisource. I attend law school at American University Washington College of Law, in Tenleytown, Washington, DC. I currently do veterans advocacy work as a director for the Iraq War Veterans Organization. I'm also a member of the American Bar Association's Special Committee on Computer Gaming and Virtual Worlds.
I maintain a blog about the law, law school, law firms, Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects, called May It Please The Court, and a mirror called Wiki-lawyer.net.
As of 12 September, 2007, I am ranked 1335 of all Wikipedians by number of edits, with nearly 12500 edits spread across approximately 5000 unique pages.
United States Army veteran. Tour in Operation Iraqi Freedom, tour in Operation Enduring Freedom. I started my service as a rifleman, then a radio telephone operator, and then a automatic gunner in an infantry battalion. My battalion was attached/OPCON to several larger units: 1st Armored Division, 3rd Infantry Division, 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, 5th Special Forces Group, and a few others. Finished my service in the same unit as I started, except it had reclassified from an infantry company to a RSTA (Reconnaissance, Surveillance, Target Acquisition) cavalry squadron. However, my company remained an infantry company (instead of changing to a cavalry troop), as we were the squadron's reconnaissance scouts. I ended my service as a regular recon scout, using the M4 carbine.
I like to edit military, law enforcement, and firearms related articles. To a large degree, they are free from the nationalism and polemic vitriol that plague other articles. Guns are guns. They are extremely neutral. They don't hold a bias either way: they're either well made, or not. What people do with them, is a whole different subject, that I try to stay out of.
