About Me

I'm Mith and I'm a 22-year-old tolkienist/tolkienologist/Tolkien-enthusiast (whichever you like) from Sussex in the UK, and I am an administrator, community manager, and dates supervisor here on the Tolkien Gateway (TG). I have graduated with a BA in Politics from the University of Sussex, and hope to find a job in Westminster soon. I have been a member of this website and community for about four years now - although I was aware of it for some time before them - and although my contributions are only modest, I hope they go some way to making this wiki the best online Tolkien resource.

With regards to Tolkien, the areas which really interest me are: languages, Tengwar, genealogies, maps, calendars, and the history of the First Age. In fact, almost everything within the legendarium!

The name Mith is a contraction of the name Mithrandir (the Sindarin name for Gandalf) which is the name I've used for myself on many Tolkien websites over the last eight years. I would, like other members, use the Quenya translation of my name (Erufailon), but I personally think it's a bit ugly, and everyone knows me as Mith anyway!

When I'm not here, I enjoy learning about everything in general (I'm a hoarder of useless information), but in particular I really like learning about language (in particular, English history, etymologies of words, etc.), politics (especially British government and politics), and British history. I'm also an avid fan of Nintendo, going to the cinema, and eating!
