About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in January 2016.

I like maps that are open and free. In a past life, I helped to create and bring to life the now defunct OSM project on MapQuest.

In my spare time, I enjoy riding bikes, listening to live music, and walking my dog.

My work

I am the Senior Program Manager for Engineering in the Technology Department focusing on planning, organizing and reporting on the wonderful work that all the Technology teams do.

Previously, I was a Product Manager for the Discovery Department with the mission to build the anonymous path of discovery to a trusted and relevant source of knowledge. My primary responsibility was the product owner of the Discovery Search, Analysis and Wikipedia portal teams.
