About me

I am just an ordinary Wikinews reporter. I am here to help out wherever I can, such as making sure news articles are up to date, creating new articles when news happens, and just to make sure things run smoothly here. In other words, if news breaks, you'll hear it from me. In real life (whatever that is), I am a part-time student pilot. I'm currently studying at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and I am a brother of Theta Xi.

My work

My work extends across the foundation. I am a staffer for the Countervandalism Network, which runs Wikimedia's antivandalism channels, including cvn-wn-en for Wikinews. I am currently assisting with the wikinews OTRS queue as well. If you need any assistance concerning PR-related matters to the foundation, please see Wikinews:Contact us or contact me directly.
