I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as Legal Counsel in April 2015. Prior to Wikimedia, I was an associate at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher where I gained experience on a variety of litigation and transactional issues with a focus on the technology space.
I attended Columbia Law School where I held internships at the FCC, the United Nations, and the New York State Attorney General's Office. During law school, I also spent a semester studying Chinese law at Peking University in Beijing. Prior to law school, I was a software engineer at Salesforce.com and double majored in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) and Bioengineering at UC Berkeley.
In my spare time, I like to travel, hike, and search for the perfect bowl of poutine.
As Legal Counsel, my focus is providing support for products and features at the Foundation. In addition, I work on a wide range of other legal and policy issues with the whole Wikimedia legal team.
Although I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, contributions under this account do not necessarily represent the actions or views of the Foundation unless expressly stated otherwise. For example, edits to articles or uploads of other media are done in my individual, personal capacity unless otherwise stated. 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.
