I am interested in biology, I am a birder, used to play rugby at a very slow and low level, like music and watching sports. Politically I am a trade unionist and a member of the Labour Party. I have been on Wikipedia since 2012 and mainly create articles, these usually contain a lot of typos so thanks to all the other editors who clean up after me. My main interests are in natural history and biology and most of the articles I create or edit will be in that area. Why do I do it? It keeps the brain working and I am continually learning. This week I have mostly being putting Automatic taxoboxes on Percomorpha articles.

Great work on Pepsis grossa. You are doing great work on building that article, and I would greatly encourage writing more content: we need more editors like you around the community. Sadads (talk) 03:01, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
