Hello I'm a Wikipedian who lives near Derby in the UK. I've worked as an engineer, teacher, consultant, an information technologist and manager. I've worked for Rolls-Royce. I have spoken and trained about Wikipedia in several countries from Norway to Israel and in Monmouth, Gibraltar, many schools and most Universities in the East Midlands.

I'm currently (Feb 2016) working with Cambridge Uni, Loughborough Uni and De Montfort Universities and the Women in Red projects in general.

I was the 3rd Wikipedian in Residence (first British).[2] I co-founded QRpedia, Monmouthpedia and Women in Red. QRpedia is still used in Joburgpedia, Freopedia, Toodyaypedia and in education applications in Algeria.[3] I was chair of WikimediaUK when it became a charity and gained its first staffed office. I've spoken about Wikipedia related projects in Israel, Europe, America and Africa.

I have worked on QRpedia projects in Derby, Monmouth, Johannesburg, Bremen, Toodyay, Fremantle, Odessa (etc).
