Consults on publishing, media and digital communications by day. Writes novels and history books and stuff by night. No longer really blogs at Fake Plastic Souks. Occasionally gets involved in space stuff too, but is most certainly not allowed to touch the red buttons.

A resident of the Emirates since 1993, I'm particularly interested in UAE history, archaeology and Emirati things in general - particularly in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

I'm useless at source editing and am frequently to be found at the site of train crashes trying to look innocent and sidle away.

I spend much of my productive time here creating articles or tidying things up: WP:BLP and WP:AfD are of interest - I try and participate at AfD as my way of saying sorry for the things I send there from working on New Page Patrol. My unproductive time is spent reading WP:ANI and wondering about the futility of it all.

I've so far created (in no particular order):

Oh, and Mimar Hayruddin, who isn't from or in any way remotely connected to the Emirates but who needed doing...

Funny, really, that nobody had bothered before...
