In my volunteer capacity, I edit Wikimedia projects with the username Spinster. I started contributing to English Wikipedia in 2003. After a hiatus (starting a family), I also became an active Commons editor, was a board member and volunteer for Wikimedia Nederland, and I have been enthusiastically contributing to Wikidata for many years now.
I'm a Belgian citizen, but I live and work in the Netherlands. I have a Master of Arts in art history from Ghent University, and have worked on various internet and video projects in the Dutch cultural sector.
In my free time, when I'm not editing Wikidata or another Wikimedia project, I like to explore cities, cycle around the Dutch countryside, look at weird contemporary art, or chase snails away from my balcony garden.
I use this account since March 2020, for paid editing and other paid Wikimedia-related freelance work that's not under direct employment of the Wikimedia Foundation. A history of my previous paid editing:
- 2014-17: I was a Wikipedian in Residence in 2014 and in Spring-Autumn 2017. In both residencies I edited with the user name Spinster.
- 2015: I worked as GLAM Project Manager for Wikimedia Netherlands. There, I co-organized the GLAM-Wiki conference in The Hague in 2015. I edited Wikimedia projects in a professional capacity with the user name SandraF (WMNL).
- I work(ed) for the Wikimedia Foundation in various capacities, editing with the user name SandraF (WMF).
- July 2017 - January 2018: part time GLAM Strategist, part time Community Liaison for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons; that latter part has been continued by Keegan Peterzell.
- February 2018 - February 2020: Program Officer, GLAM and Structured Data, in the Community Programs team at the Wikimedia Foundation, working primarily for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons, and after mid 2019 also for the OpenGLAM and WMSE GLAM Hub projects.
- March - June 2020: GLAM-Wiki Specialist (part-time, contractor) in the Community Programs team at the Wikimedia Foundation, working primarily on team transitions and on the WMSE GLAM Hub project.
- Other freelance paid editing:
- March - June 2020: part-time ad interim GLAM Project Manager at Wikimedia Nederland, replacing Michelle van Lanschot during her maternity leave. I edit Wikimedia projects with this user account (SFauconnier).
