I have been a practicing (volunteer) Wikipedian for many years; my home wiki is the Hebrew Wikipedia, but I make occasional contributions on the English Wikipedia as well, under my volunteer account. I have a strong background in software engineering, and an abiding interest in literature, education, open access, linked data, and library science.
Because people consistently mistake my last name to be Russian, let me clarify it is in fact 100% Hebrew.
I am working on increasing reach (readers) and participation (editors) in the developing world, through community support as well as partnerships with grantees, other NGOs, and governments.
My main project as of 2016 is the Community Capacity Development program, currently in its pilot year.
