About Me

My name is Ryan, and I've been working on Wikipedia off and on since March 2003. I presently live in San Francisco, California.

If you need to reach me non-urgently, or while I'm actively editing, feel free to leave a message on my talk page. I'll respond as soon as I see the "new messages" banner. Otherwise, send me an e-mail and I'll probably respond more quickly if I'm not actively editing right now. If I'm on freenode IRC, my nick is usually "^Darkwind^".
