You can leave a message for me here by using my User Talk page. I have been an admin since 3 May 2006, and a bureaucrat since 12 July 2009.

My work around here varies from day to day. As an administrator, I keep an eye on new pages and try to answer questions. I also participate regularly in the various community fora. Besides these, I participate in page expansion and cleanup, editing, adding new entries, finding quotations, and adding pronunciations. I also record audio files for English and Classical Latin.

Perhaps the biggest effort I make is contributing towards Latin and Galician. I used to be heavily involved in coordinating the Word of the Day selections, but have since turned that over into other capable hands.
