I am interested in the impact of technology and its regulation on society, open source/open culture communities, and free speech issues. Before joining the Wikimedia Foundation, I worked in private practice in the United States and Japan and interned at the Software Freedom Law Center.
I have a J.D. from Columbia Law School and I am licensed to practice law in New York. When I'm not lawyering, I love to scuba dive, take photos, travel, hike, and learn new things on Wikipedia.
I work on contracts, trademark licensing, and general legal threats.
