About me

I joined the Foundation in June 2012. I am proud to come from a long line of tiger mascots and have earned an Award of Excellence [pictured]. I first got into Wikipedia while researching the age-old question of Tigers v. Lions (obviously tigers are better, but I respect the COI policy) and have been hooked ever since.

While I love Wikipedia, my favorite project is actually Wikispecies. I also like spending my free time looking up the etymology on Wiktionary and reading public domain classics on Wikisource.

On the more personal side of things, I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA and currently reside in the WMF offices in SOMA. My interests include Calvin and Hobbes and Frosted Flakes. My favorite motivational song is “Eye of the Tiger.” I wear blue Cookie Monster™ slippers.

My work

I handle most legal matters where no action is the best strategy. Staring down opponents in litigation without blinking is just one of my strengths, explaining our perfect trial record.

I have taken a great interest in animal rights and defending mammals in copyright lawsuits fighting human piracy. My interests also include the contributions of stuffed animals to the open source movement. I remain committed to developing human-animal communication techniques, including the creation of this user page.

Due to my personal dedication to the movement and the lack of muscles, I live in the office, working late nights, without ever going home.
