About me

I am here with the Foundation as a summer legal intern, on summer break from the University of Minnesota Law School. I graduated from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington and then spent several years working at KCTS9 in Seattle, former home of Bill Nye the Science Guy.

When not working, I enjoy running, biking, and fencing. Right now I'm mostly spending my free time exploring San Francisco or getting FaceTime with my wife back in Minneapolis.

I am a long time Wikipedia user, though only occasional editor. I fully intend on becoming a bigger part of the community during and following this internship.

My work

As a Legal Intern, I perform legal research and writing to support the Legal and Community Advocacy Department. As a part of that work, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to interact with the community in the LCA category on the Meta-Wiki.

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.
