Like the book "Galactic Pot-Healer", I was born in northern California a long time ago. Later, unlike the book, I became a system administrator for most of my adult life. Recently I've turned my hand to something I like a lot more: technical writing. Biking around Berlin is one of the most enjoyable activities I can imagine, despite inevitably being covered in dead gnats.
As the new technical writer at Wikimedia Deutschland, my goals are to discover, improve, unify and round out documentation for the Wikibase & Wikidata development team; my specific duties are defined by my team leadership and the leadership of both products.
I see a lot of documentation out there, and it needs organizing so that people of every audience can find the information they’re looking for. Audiences include volunteers & the community, employees of Wikimedia Deutschland and independent users of the products, and I see plenty of overlap between those groups. Perhaps most importantly, if the documentation someone needs doesn’t exist, I want to see it get written.
My tasks are varied and change quicker than the text on this page, but one thing you can be sure I'm working on is the Wikibase FAQ.
