About me

I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects (see my personal account). In May 2012 I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as the "Product Manager" for the Editing department.

My work

My job is to help make sure the Editing department understand what the community wants and needs, is focussed on the things that matter, and is engaging with and understood by the community. My work covers VisualEditor as well as several dozen other tools.
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.
