I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as a legal counsel in February 2016, after having previously worked on the legal team as an intern and as the Intellectual Property & Internet Law Fellow.
I received my law degree from Harvard Law School, where I was Editor-in-Chief of the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender and a writer and performer for the law school comedy musical. I received my bachelor's degree from Georgetown University, where I majored in computer science and minored in linguistics and Japanese.
Among the other things that interest and entertain me are: television, craft beer, food, sci-fi & fantasy, music, video games, and queer theory.
I oversee the Wikimedia trademark portfolio, including trademark registration, enforcement, and licensing. I work with the General Counsel/Secretary to support the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. I also provide legal advice and support to Wikimedia Foundation staff working on grantmaking, fundraising, and the Wikimedia affiliate system. Occasionally, I work on copyright, licensing, and public policy issues.
