About me

I have been an Activist (volunteer) Wikipedian for some years now; my home wiki is the Xitsonga Wikipedia which is one of the small language Wikipedias in my country.

I have a considerable background in Electrical engineering and developed an interest in statists. I enjoy reading books from time to time and tinkering with writing occasionally. Above all, I enjoy a good conversation! :-)

My work

I work as part of the Tech Law team in the Legal department to support community governance committees such as Affcom, Arbcom, Ombcom and other functionary committees. In this role, I aim to work with other Wikimedians to collaboratively and equitably build systems of governance to support effective movement management.

I previously worked in the Global Data and Insights Team as a monitoring and evaluation strategist, Where amongst other things, I managed the development of the Wikimedia Affiliates Data portal.

However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
