About me

I am a recent graduate from Michigan State University, College of Law where I focused my studies on intellectual property law. I am excited to continue working with the Wikimedia Foundation after joining the WMF as a legal intern and then a felllow.

My work

As legal counsel for the Wikimedia Foundation, I will focus primarily on handling contracts and trademark licensing for the WMF. Additionally, I will support the Wikipedia Zero program and help diffuse legal threats. I will continue exploring how intellectual property, privacy, and cyber law effect the functioning of an open-source community organization.
