About Me

I'm a 20-year-old tolkienist/tolkienologist/Tolkien-enthusiast (whichever you like) who is currently studying a BA in Politics and living in Sussex, UK. I haven been a member of this website and community for a while now: I've met some great people, and I hope that I'll be able to make a difference - if only a small one - to the Tolkien Gateway project.

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 and everything they create, and I can assure you all now that the Wii is going to do very well.

With regards to Tolkien, the areas which really interest me are: languages, Tengwar, genealogies, maps, calendars, and the history of the First Age.
