Hello, I'm Sannse Carter Cushway.
I'm occasionally asked about my name... it's pronounced somewhere between "san-seh" and "san-say". It's a nickname I've been using since about 2001, and one day I will make it my legal name. Of course, my mother will still call me by my birth name!
I used to live in a small town on the East coast of England, but have now moved to the wondrous land of San Francisco. I am part of Wikia's Community Support Team.
My Wikipedia user page is at Wikipedia:User:Sannse, I joined the project in December 2002 and was active there for several years. I'm also a big fan of Uncyclopedia, and have contributed several photoshopped images to the site.
