I am an admin on the English Wikipedia and I was chair of Wikimedia UK. I have over three thousand pictures loaded in my gallery. I have taken an interest in Geograph and Flickr pictures for Derbyshire and in pictures from British galleries. My interest was GLAMWIKI and the event at Derby Museums in April 2011 for Wikipedians. I was chair of wikimedia UK for a year. Since then I have been a wikipedian "in residence" with Monmouthshire and then Gibraltar. In July 2013 the project topped 1,000 new articles in less than a year.

My quirk is that I like creating image maps which I first learnt about from a featured picture. I dislike copyfraud. Public domain has to mean something and you have to do much more than take a photo to claim a new copyright. Paintings were given to galleries so they could be shared as best they could be at the time. Now they can and should be shared with the world.
