I am a Wikipedian from British Columbia, Canada. I edit the English Wikipedia under the nickname, where I like to tinker at articles ranging from forest fires to pop musicians. I help out with the Wikipedia Library project and try to keep an even keel as a novice administrator. I have studied film and library science, and occasionally work the reference desk at the Vancouver Public Library.
I am the manager of the Support task force at the Wikimedia Foundation. I started with the WMF as a Liaison for the VisualEditor product team in mid 2013. In April of 2014, I moved to the Support and Safety team, first as a Community Advocate. In January 2017, I became the manager of Support. What does the CA team do? We facilitate communication between the Foundation staff and the many diverse editing communities and editors that make the project work. We also assist other WMF departments in their work, and help editors and readers with issues.
Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try 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. Although I am a member of the Legal and Community Advocacy team, I am not a lawyer. The legal team can only represent the Wikimedia Foundation on legal matters, so we are unable to give legal advice to others, including community members, editors, or contributors. Communications with members of the legal team are not consultations and do not create any confidential relationship.
