About me

I ❤️  open knowledge!!!

My background is in product management and product strategy and working on software that has such a positive impact on the world is a dream come true for me.

My work

I led product for the Readers team and then the OMNI team. The Readers team's mission was to develop tools and experiences that improve Wikipedia and our sister projects for our hundreds of millions of readers. This included desktop and mobile web, as well as the official Wikipedia Apps for Android and iOS.

The Reader's team eventually expanded into other areas, including editing and we informally changed our names to "OMNI" to reflect our broader mandate.

I left the Wikimedia Foundation in July, 2021.

Disclaimer: 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, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
