Design Manager, Wikimedia Foundation
"In the rush to privatization, the barriers that once existed between many public and private spaces—keeping advertisements out of schools, for instance, profit-making interests out of health care, or news outlets from acting purely as promotional vehicles for their owners’ other holdings—have nearly all been levelled. Every protected public space has been cracked open, only to be re-enclosed by the market." – Naomi Klein

About me

I'm a designer and coder, with an interest in interaction and information design. I like making things that support activism and social change.

Early in my career I spent a short but dark time at various soul–sucking corporations. Since then I've committed myself to spending as much of my time as I can on projects that both help and empower people, including a lifelong commitment to throwing things at free-market capitalists.

If you have a project you think I can help you with, please get in touch.

I edit on English Wikipedia as moizsyed.

My work

I'm currently helping Discovery Team, and have previously worked on Growth, Mobile, Legal and Fundraising teams.

Disclaimer: I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I intend 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.
