About MeEdit

I am currently a PhD student in sociology at the University of Western Ontario. Unfortunately this leaves little time for Wikinews, but if there is something going on around London, Ontario (or something really cool in Toronto) that needs covering let me know.

I discovered Wikinews in mid-March 2005 while trying to start a Wiki based news website. I had just finished getting my site set up when I found Wikinews. I was very happy to discover I would not need to be the one to start it. :) I joined Wikinews and made my first edit on March 15 2005. I became an admin on 25 May 2005. On 3 October 2005 I became a bureaucrat. I am a former member of the Wikinews Arbcom and I have Checkuser status. I am a former Steward.

I am interested in stories about technology, law, Fiji and the rest of the South Pacific.

My ProjectsEdit

I created the Wikinews:Print edition and used to update it. Hopefully it will be replaced by an automated system in the future.
