About me

I enjoy the bridging of network, system & software engineering work and finding opportunities to collaborate with similarly-spirited people; I have been utilizing those skills in the technical infrastructure sector for more than a decade. I am passionate about the free software, free culture and, lately, digital rights/privacy movements and I have a long history of involvement in the free software community.

I am Greek and live in Athens, Greece where I was also born and raised. My name is the Latin transliteration of the ancient Greek name Φαίδων and can be pronounced as /féðon/.

My work

I have been a member of Wikimedia Foundation's Technical Operations team since March 2012. I work on making all of Wikimedia's sites reliable, scalable, secure and performant for more than 500 million users as well as featureful in collaboration with software engineering teams, all in a manner consistent with Wikimedia Foundation's guiding principles.

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.
