About me

Bookworm, love poems, law, economics nerd

My work

I work in the legal team at the Wikimedia Foundation. The practice of law is often thought of as antiquated. Not here - not at the foundation! Here, every day we work on legal issues for which there is no precedent: at the exciting edge of where law and technology meet.

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.
