About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in January 2016.

In the past, I've been active in the OpenStreetMap community and greatly enjoyed working with many wonderful folks to make the best map data set of the world that is free and open (licensed) to anyone. I also helped to create and bring to life (along with many other fabulous folks) the OSM project on MapQuest.

In my spare time, I enjoy riding my bike as much as possible, listening to live music, and walking our pack of dogs (current count is 4).

My work

I am a Product Manager for the Discovery Department at the Wikimedia Foundation. Our mission is to build the anonymous path of discovery to a trusted and relevant source of knowledge. My primary responsibility is to be product owner of the Wikipedia portal page as well as the Discovery Analysis and Search teams.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
