Senior Engineering Manager, Wikimedia Foundation

About me

I am a high-energy, multi-disciplinary leader and change agent with a relentless drive for organizational excellence. In my role, I focus on cultivating deep employee-satisfaction, DIBE (Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Equity), and doing the right thing for our users. My career focus is building products that make a positive impact on the world.

I have a decade of experience in Technology, 7 years of experience leading remote & co-located teams, 3 years of experience as a software engineer, and a BS in Computer Science.

Originally from the Southern US, I’ve had the opportunity to spend several years living abroad in Scandinavia and Western Europe and now call British Columbia, Canada home.

My passions include languages, environmental sustainability, and animal welfare.

My work

I manage the engineers on the m:Abstract Wikipedia team and work with the other leaders to drive the project.
