About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in early March 2014. I have been thinking a lot about eventualism. I am one of the original authors of Team Social Norms adopted by a few Technology teams at WMF.

My hope is to leave things better than I found them.

I find pistachios enjoyable.

I believe that the means determine the eventual end.

My work

I have a broad background in infrastructure administration (*nix, networking, virtualization, Puppet, Kubernetes, Openstack, etc), information security (engineering, governance, compliance, etc), and care deeply about servant leadership.

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.
