About me

As of 2015, I'm a 24-year old Wikipedian (en) since 2005. I've lived in many places, but currently reside in the States (Philly to be exact).

I graduated from Wharton@Penn with an Economics BSc (concentrations in Management and Operations). For my Wikipedia alter-ego, check out user:Chsh.

Most of my free time now goes towards being a triathlete. But, I also enjoy writing, pretending I'm good at chess, and traveling. Oh, and I edit Wikipedia when I'm in front of the computer.

My work

Day-to-day I work in consultancy. I also do work for a number of nonprofits as a consultant and in an operational capacity. In my free time, I work on nonprofit organizations I've helped found and on small startup projects.

I wholeheartedly believe that the Wikipedia platform is our greatest invention of the Internet age. And so I support the Wikimedia Mission, Vision, and Strategic Plan.

I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as an FDC member and I believe my skills and background would greatly benefit the Foundation and its community.
