About me

I joined Wikimedia in 2011 to work on the mobile partnerships program. Before joining WMF in San Francisco, I lived in South Korea, where I worked for Samsung in global strategy, focused on growth of digital media devices and online programs throughout the world. I've also previously worked in online marketing and business development at Match.com, and, prior to that, at a brand marketing agency. I started my career as a PR spokesperson and driver of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, traveling the US non-stop for a full year. I'm originally from Dallas, Texas and have an MBA from the The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a bachelor's degree from the University of Texas.

My work

I work on building and optimizing mobile partnerships, including Wikipedia Zero, in order to expand the reach and accessibility of Wikipedia. With the foundation's mission of creating "a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all human knowledge," I get to work on the "every single human being" part of that statement.
