I am a wikitraveller from Vancouver, BC where I teach theatre and write. I first started using Wikipedia on a regular basis when I noticed my students using it as a study aid. I use it for some of my lecture prep and fact-finding when I update my course content. Whenever I can, I update with contributions from my own work in my field(s).
