My work

I joined WMF in February 2021, and my first project was redesigning The Wikipedia Library homepage. After that I led design for Abstract Wikipedia and Wikifunctions from 2021-2022. In July of 2022 I joined Trust and Safety Tools as their design lead and am currently design and building a Private Incident Reporting System in collaboration with the Trust and Safety department.
