This user is Mark Ryan.

Hi, I'm Mark Ryan, a 28 year old Western Australian. My first Wikipedia edit was back in October 2001, and I became an Administrator in 2004. I was an administrator of the WikiEN-l mailing list, and used to answer emails sent to Wikimedia on OTRS. I also used to be fairly active on Wikimedia's IRC channels, and I also made both incarnations of Wikimedia's multilingual error messages. I am a member of Wikiproject Western Australia.

Off Wikipedia, in the time since I joined Wikipedia, I have graduated High School, completed a 6-year Law/Commerce double degree from The University of Western Australia and now work for a Big Four accounting firm. The pressures of full time work mean that I will no longer be able to contribute to Wikipedia to a substantial extent.
