About me

As a long time user of Wikimedia projects, I'm excited to have a role in defending them and helping them grow as part of the Legal and Community Advocacy Team this summer. I am deeply committed to the spread of free knowledge, and I am particularly interested in the intersection of law, free speech, and technology.

Before law school I worked as both a radio and print reporter, and I also spent several years as a technical writer. I received my BA in History from Swarthmore College, and I'm pursuing my JD at Stanford Law School.

My work

In my role, I support the Office of the General Counsel as we address all legal matters related to the Foundation and its projects.

You can read more about our initiatives here and here.

Although I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, contributions under this account do not necessarily represent the actions or views of the Foundation unless expressly stated otherwise. For example, edits to articles or uploads of other media are done in my individual, personal capacity unless otherwise stated. The legal team can only represent the Wikimedia Foundation on legal matters, so we are unable to give legal advice to others, including community members, editors, or contributors. Communications with members of the legal team are not consultations and do not create any confidential relationship.
