About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in September 2013. I am from Cincinnati and attended University of Cincinnati’s School of Design. Prior to Wikimedia, I worked as a design intern at Apple in Cupertino, and Cooper, a user experience design firm. I’m especially interested in the intersections of design, technology and journalism.

I edit on English Wikipedia as kaitymh. I live with a bunch of artists in a warehouse loft in SOMA, San Francisco.

My work

As part of the design team, I work on improving the experience of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia foundation projects.
