I am a researcher at the Heilbronn University's i3G Institute (in Germany) where I work
for the Software R&D group. I am an assistant to [Christoph Sauer] where I am the lead developer of the WikiWizard, a WYSIWiki editor for the JSPWiki. I founded the [Esperanto Wikipedia|http://eo.wikipedia.org/] (the 15th largest Wikipedia with 40,000+ articles) and am a board member of the [World Esperanto Youth Organization|http://www.tejo.org/]. I also maintain the [JSPWiki record at WikiMatrix.Org|http://www.wikimatrix.org/show/JSPWiki].

I had the pleasure of meeting JanneJalkanen at the Wikimania 2005 conference in Frankfurt and am excited to see where this project will take us.  I am originally from Harrisburg, PA, USA, but have lived in recent years in Rotterdam (Netherlands), Calgary (Canada) and New York City.

At WikiSym 06, I lead a workshop on [WikiCreole] with the help of ChristophSauer, JanneJalkanen and WardCunningham.

I am in charge of WikiWizardIdeas.
