About me

I began working for the Wikimedia Foundation in December 2013. Before being part of the awesome project that Wikipedia is, I spent time working in JavaScript, performance, mobile apps and web frameworks in the retail and social space. Most of my experience deploying large applications comes from the seven years that I worked at Amazon.com in projects like Mechanical Turk. I am a physicist by training and I started writing software in a Physical Oceanography Lab in Seattle. A long time ago. When Big Data was just called "science".
