About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation full-time in 2010, after doing several months of external consulting work with the Foundation.

Prior to joining Wikimedia, I worked with the Bridgespan Group in San Francisco and, among other cases in education and youth development, was on the team that supported the strategy development process at the Wikimedia Foundation. Before Bridgespan, I was a strategy consultant with Bain & Co. in Chicago where I worked in various industries including telecommunications, consumer products, healthcare, and financial services. I also served in the Private Equity Group. I hail from Carmel, Indiana and graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Public Policy Analysis and International Business, with focuses on Spanish and Religious Studies.

My work

I work as a Special Projects Manager on the Global Development team: a programmatic team committed to encouraging the growth of Wikimedia communities and the projects around the world with a priority focus on the Global South. I contribute to a range of initiatives including establishing our India, Brazil, and Arabic language programs, supporting strategies for mobile and offline, orchestrating University and w:open educational resources relationships, and other unpredictable roles as the Global Development work is being built!
