What I've done hereEdit

I'm a 7 year editor (4 as an ip) with about 35,000 edits spread evenly around the project. My main focuses have been alternative medicine/pseudoscience, middle east current events and historic individuals, copyediting large articles, cleaning up policies, engaging in community policy discussions, preparing help documentation and guides for new users, integrating COI editors into best practices, assisting new editors in irc help chat and at Articles for Creation, working on an educational game called The Wikipedia Adventure, getting editors free access to proprietary research databases like HighBeam through The Wikipedia Library, building relationships with organization that share a similar mission like Turnitin, Cochrane and OCLC, and helping others develop grants and projects in the IdeaLab.
