I'm originally from Texas, and have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and DC.
I am one of the WMF's Senior Public Policy Managers, working on the various intersections of law, policy, and the free knowledge ecosystem. Previously, I was Vice President of Legal Affairs and Public Knowledge, and Special Counsel at the US Federal Communications Commission.
