About Me

I am a citizen of New Zealand and the United Kingdom and have been resident of Berlin for almost four years.

I am an active swimmer and enjoy cycling.

I have been an editor of Wikipedia for 16 years, involved with research, syntax cleanup, and editor support.

I enjoy playing Dungeons & Dragons with my friends, writing blog posts for my personal website, and have a keen interest in philosophy.

Before COVID, I travelled frequently, most recently to Corfu, Prague, and Warsaw.

I have recently read The Life You Can Save by Peter Singer, The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay, and The Shortest History of Germany by James Hawes.
