I've been an editor since 2006; in my time on the projects I've handled deletions, patrolling, created a load of articles, and participated in pretty much every major area. In October 2011, the WMF asked me to take up the then-new role of Community Liaison, Product Development, which I worked on until late 2013 - at which point we now have five Liaisons. I consider that pretty successful :). Having trained up the newcomers, I shifted to the role of Product Analyst, and from there to researcher. I currently study our search system and how it satisfies (or doesn't satisfy) readers.
Outside of Wikipedia; I'm an avid R programmer and contribute a lot of code upstream, and enjoy archery and whisky.
I'm a researcher and primarily work around reader data, particularly for Mobile.
