About me

Hi there! My name is Joe and I'm a Community Advocate at the Wikimedia Foundation. I've been an editor on the English Wikipedia (and dabbled in various other Wikimedia projects) since 2006. In real life, I graduated with a BA(Hons.) in Journalism in 2015. I'm originally from Aberdeen, Scotland, but moved to San Francisco in August 2016.

I wrote a dissertation on how Wikipedia reacts to breaking news as part of my degree.

My work

I'm a Community Advocate on the Support and Safety team. Our team helps to empower volunteers within the Wikimedia movement by providing a bridge to the Foundation's work, as well as helping the Foundation work more effectively with communities. I also help to undertake and to present New Readers research.

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.
