I've been a Wikimedian since 2004, under the user name notafish. I have worked in the wine business, Communication and Event Management, as well as been a trainer in Intercultural Communication. While I have started by editing the Wikimedia projects, I have always been a Wiki*m*edian at heart, and always been interested in the development of the Wikimedia organisations. I am dedicated to our mission and our values, of course. Over 15+ years, I have constantly been amazed by the range of fantastic people that I have crossed paths with, whether volunteers, staff or partners. All this to say, I'm really in for the people.
I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2016. As of March 2020, I have moved to the Foundation's Talent & Culture Department (HR) in 2020 to work mainly on onboarding Wikimedia Foundation staff. I will focus among other topics on revamping and streamlining Foundation staff onboarding and orientation around Wikimedia community and movement. Before that, I worked 4 years as a Program Officer at the Foundation to support the Annual Plan Grants process, working mainly with the FDC and participating affiliates.
As of June 2018, I started also working as the strategy liaison for the Wikimedia Foundation, responsible for monitoring alignment and cooperation between the movement strategy process and the strategy work at the organizational level in the Wikimedia Foundation.
In March 2020, I joined the Talent & Culture Department (HR) to work on onboarding my fellow staff members at the Foundation to the organization and the movement.
