From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'm Thebiguglyalien (he/him), but I also answer to TBUA, BUA, Alien, and "who's this clown". I'm a lifelong resident of Arizona, and my hobbies include editing Wikipedia. I created my account in 2015, my first edit was in 2017, and I became a regular contributor in February 2022.

My areas of interest are history and social sciences, and I'm generally active on Wikipedia sporadically throughout the day. Much of my editing involves seeking out underdeveloped articles to carry out large expansions and rewrites (a WikiPuma, if you will). Besides this, I write women's biographies to help close the gender gap with Women in Red and Women in Green.

Any allegations that I'm an alien from Mars bent on intergalactic domination are unproven.
