In my free time, 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 a few years now. I was a (paid) Wikipedian in Residence in 2014 and in Spring-Autumn 2017.
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 work(ed) for the Wikimedia Foundation in various capacities.
- 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.
