I am a barrister specialising in offshore finance (based in the British Virgin Islands). I focus mostly on legal articles, but I also write or edit articles about British Virgin Islands history, British Virgin Islands politics, scuba diving and American football, as well as any other subject where I feel I can usefully contribute.

I prefer to write semi-anonymously to try and draw a line between my professional legal opinions and my "academic" writing on Wikipedia.

I have been editing Wikipedia off and on for 15 years, 209 days. I used to be quite prolific on Wikipedia, but like all things in life, kids and jobs have slowed the flood to a veritable trickle.

My ContributionsEdit

I have written a lot of articles, but I have never written a Featured Article (I have done a few "A class" articles though). Probably the best article that I think I have done is the local authorities swaps litigation article - that involved summarising complex concepts of law and finance in a way (I felt) reasonably understandable to the general public. In best Wikipedia fashion it was summarily assessed as a "C" class article, but what can you do?

I am also quietly proud of History of the British Virgin Islands.

I have also had a few Did you knows? over the years:

I have only ever been awarded three Barnstars. Read into that what you will.
