About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as a legal counsel in February 2016, after having previously worked on the legal team as an intern and as the Intellectual Property & Internet Law Fellow.

I received my law degree from Harvard Law School, where I was Editor-in-Chief of the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender and a writer and performer for the law school comedy musical. I received my bachelor's degree from Georgetown University, where I majored in computer science and minored in linguistics and Japanese.

Among the other things that interest and entertain me are: television, craft beer, food, sci-fi & fantasy, music, video games, and queer theory.

My work

I work on a variety of legal issues affecting the Wikimedia Foundation, projects, and community, with a primary focus on trademark and copyright. I deal with trademark registration, enforcement, and licensing, and I help plan and implement WMF's copyright strategy.

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.
