My Work
I work to strengthen the communications and collaboration between the Wikimedia movement and the Wikimedia Foundation. Some of my ongoing projects include: Wikimania, Conversations with the Trustees, improving the Foundation's presence on Meta-Wiki, and communications support for other Foundation teams in their collaborative work with Wikimedia communities.
About Me
I began working at the Wikimedia Foundation in November 2018. I've worked in international transparency, labor and political organizing, and education. I've lived in five countries (and hopefully counting). Based in San Francisco.
I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, and edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
