About me

I am interested in the impact of technology and its regulation on society, open source/open culture communities, and free speech issues. Before joining the Wikimedia Foundation, I worked in private practice for a New York law firm and Panasonic Corporation and interned at the Software Freedom Law Center.

I have a J.D. from Columbia Law School and I am licensed to practice law in New York. When I'm not lawyering, I love to scuba dive, take photos, travel, hike, and learn new things on Wikipedia.

My work

I work on contracts, trademark licensing, and general legal threats.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation. The legal team can only represent the Wikimedia Foundation on legal matters, so we are unable to give legal advice to others, including community members, editors, or contributors. Communications with members of the legal team are not consultations and do not create any confidential relationship.
