Most of my wiki-work contributes to Wikispecies, where I'm an admin and bureaucrat,verify and to the Swedish Wikipedia. Swedish is my mother tongue – even though I was born in Jakobstad, Finland – but I feel fairly comfortable speaking and writing English and some German as well. Odd as it may seem, unfortunately I can't speak any Finnish.

My Finland-Swedish family name consists of two parts: kron – a short form of the Swedish word krona meaning 'crown', as in coronation crown or tree crown – and kvist, meaning 'bough' or 'twig'. Hence the name Kronkvist refers to a twig in the canopy of a forest. I'm the fourth generation of Kronkvist's. Before that our family name was Mattus, dating back from at least 1637. Today I live in Uppsala, the fourth biggest city in Sweden.
