Active on both en.wikipedia and Commons with admin tools and an infreqent contributor to Wikinews, even occassionally on other project but those edits are mostly from following up admin task performed on Commons.

For Wiki 10 I was interviewed live in a 30 minute radio slot about Wikipedia reaching ten years, and have answered a number queries for that station since. Then in March 2011 I did another interview with a regional radio station in relation to some outreach I was doing at the request of the Australian Chapter. Since then I have been working with a major Australian national broadcaster in developing a series of outreach workshops on Wikipedia and Commons for regional centres across Australia. After a successful pilot we were in the throws of finalising the workshops unfortunately due to a funding hiccup the program has been put on hold.

After attending Wikimania in Washington I returned to Western Australia and approached the City of Fremantle to work on creating a QRpedia WikiTown. This work contributed to the development of Freopedia which was launched during Fremantle Heritage week on 26th May 2013.
