About me

I enjoy the intersection of network, system & software engineering and have been working in operations, infrastructure and DevOps/SRE roles for more than a decade. I am passionate and have a long history of volunteer and professional involvement in the free/open-source software, free culture and digital rights/privacy movements.

I am Greek and live in Athens, Greece where I was also born and raised. My name is the Latin transliteration of the ancient Greek name Φαίδων and can be pronounced as /féðon/.

My work

I joined the Foundation in 2012. I currently co-lead the Site Reliability Engineering team (previously known as Technical Operations), which is responsible for keeping the Wikimedia sites reliable, scalable, secure and performant.

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.
