About me

I was a journalist planning to move to the Middle East when the Internet, hypertext and online collaboration changed my life forever. Interested in software freedom, freedom freedom and the ingredients of social happiness. Catalan and Spanish native speaker, I contributed mainly to Vikitexts before evolving into mediawiki.org and becoming a MediaWiki hobbyist admin (for Espiral, my pet project). I starter working at the Wikimedia Foundation while living in with my trans-European family in Mountain View (CA, USA). Now you can find us in Cologne (NRW, Germany).

My work

I look for new technical contributors to the Wikimedia community in areas like software development, testing, documentation and systems administration. My tasks include promoting our open source software projects and the ways to get involved, organizing tech events targeted for newcomers and collaborating with other organizations in outreach activities.
