Countries I've worked in
I am Scottish, but live in York. Early in my career I worked as a marine geophysicist, working in offshore/nearshore engineering projects in various far-flung (and near-flung) parts of the world. Tired of the constant travel, I retrained, and now work on dry land, teaching English, maths, history and coding to small people.
Girth Summit is a pseudonym. Girth is a nickname I go by in real life, and Summit is a reference to mountains, which I enjoy climbing when I can find the time. For more discussion of my username, click here.
I have an alternate account, Girth Sockit. I don't generally edit with it, I use it to remind me what editing Wikipedia is like when you don't have a bunch of scripts and advanced permissions, so I can give better advice to new editors.

- Most of my Wikipedia-related communications happens on here - feel free to leave me a note on my talk page.
- I use IRC occasionally. You might find me hanging around in channels like #wikipedia-en-help or in the admin/revdel channels, under the name GirthSummit.
- I do not use Discord, Twitter, Facebook, or other any other social media type things. Anyone posting under the name Girth Summit anywhere outside of Wikimedia projects and IRC is not me.
- You are welcome to e-mail me using the Wikipedia e-mail system, but be aware that I tend only to reply by e-mail to people I already know. Please don't be surprised or offended if I reply on your talk page, rather than directly to the e-mail.
