About me

I love helping people learn, teach and progress in their careers, and helping people share what they know with others.

Before joining the Wikimedia Foundation, I was an Engineering Manager at FutureLearn, alongside leading on the tech team’s outreach and learning initiatives. I also used to run an events company (Geeks of London) organising tech community events like hackathons and BarCamps in the UK. I'm also a conference speaker, covering topics from good management practices to becoming a better speaker.

My work

I was at the Wikimedia Foundation from August 2021 to January 2023. I was the manager of the Wikimedia Developer Advocacy sub-team of the Wikimedia Technical Engagement team.
