About me

I'm a father, husband, friend, musician, artist and engineer. I like writing and performing music, surfing, vintage Nintendo games and sushi.

My work

I joined WMF in 2008 as a Software Engineer and led many initiatives to improve user experience including the Vector skin, the WikiEditor wikitext editor, the ResourceLoader front-end resource packaging and delivery system and the VisualEditor WYSIWYM editor. I am now the Head of Editing, where I lead several teams, each focused on increasing the volume and quality of, and capacity for, contributions to Wikimedia's free-knowledge projects.

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.
