I am an English Wikipedia administrator and editor who spreads his time between various areas. As of late, I tend to work a lot with the Rolling Stones and Taylor Swift related articles; the two are separated by decades and styles—some may say diametrically opposed—but somehow I find a balance...I guess Ms. Swift being a fan of the Stones and how I discovered her helps . Outside of articles I tend to specialize in sockpuppet investigations, where I have been a clerk since October 2019, and as a member of the Bot Approvals Group on the English Wikipedia; the Bot Approvals Group acts as the oversight body, approving bots on the English Wikipedia.
On other projects, I hold a variety of user rights. On meta, I am a global renamer.
Basically, I help out where I can and where my interests take me.
Note to the press
The Wikimedia Foundation, the English Wikipedia, and specific articles within our encyclopedia are all routinely the subject of substantial news coverage by reputable media sources. Unfortunately, the media often misunderstands how Wikipedia works, leading to mistakes and even retractions. If you stumble upon my profile while working on an article for a reputable news source, please feel free to reach out to me for clarification on any facts or just to sanity check yourself. I regularly monitor my email and will respond within 24 hours, if not sooner. You can email me by registering an account and clicking "Email this user" on the left sidebar of this user page from all major desktop browsers. You can also contact me on my "User talk" page without an account by clicking the "Talk" link at the top of this page and clicking "New Section" on the resulting page, although you should be aware that your IP address will be visible to all users if you fail to log in.
My all-time favourite RfA & pic
My favourite RfA of all time award goes to User:Xaosflux/Requests for adminship/Wikipe-tan, as it made me laugh aloud in a quiet library.
