About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2013. I have extensive experience in product management and development at a range of companies from startups to some of the largest Internet sites and game developers in the US, Asia and Europe. I'm originally from Los Angeles, but have found my home in San Francisco after stops in the UK, Stockholm and Amsterdam. I graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with degrees in History and Visual Culture.

My work

I lead the the Analytics team here at the Foundation. The team empowers and supports data informed decision making across the the Foundation and the Community.

The team is composed of two groups, Development and Research and Data. Development builds the infrastructure, tools and datasets that enable the organization and the community to easily access, process and act on our data in a way that is consistent with our values. Research and Data supports the organization in making research-informed decisions, to better understand our editor community and projects, and to determine the impact of new programs and products that the Foundation is designing.
