My hometown is Vienna, Austria. I studied film and media studies and worked as a manager and curator for film festivals and cinemas for several years.
I joined the German-language Wikipedia as user Funke in 2005. My thematic focus is the West African country of Niger. I also contribute regularly to Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata.
Wikimedia Österreich is a service provider for the Wikimedia communities in Austria. I joined the chapter as community manager in March 2014. From May 2020 to February 2021 I was Wikimedia Österreich's Executive Director as maternity leave coverage and since March 2021 I'm Head of Programs.
I’m a founding member of the Volunteer Supporters Network. We care about sharing insights on community support within the movement.
You can talk to me in English and German.
