About me

Prior to joining the Wikimedia Foundation in July 2014, I worked as an ESL Teacher and then as a Marketing Coordinator at an agency specializing in marketing projects for tech companies. Since I was majoring in English Language and Literature, I spent most of my time on Wikipedia researching different UK dialects, especially Cockney, since that was the topic of my thesis. I love reading English and Russian literature as well as playing sports and traveling.

My work

I oversee the Wikipedia store, collaborate with companies on introducing new merchandise and develop different marketing efforts to promote the movement.
