Hi, I am Lukas Mezger, a media and IT lawyer and amateur clarinetist from Hamburg, Germany. I've been a Wikipedian since 2005, and most of my editing takes place on German Wikipedia. As a member of Wikimedia Deutschland, I served as an elected member of the board from 2014 to 2022.

In the past, I've lived in several places around Germany as well as in Italy and in the United States.

In the Wikiverse, I try not to engage in too many discussions. However, I am in favour of transparent rules. Also, I would like to help making the Wikimedia projects more friendly and constructive. Please let me know where I've failed to do so.

I was a legal fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation during the summer of 2013, one of the privacy ombudsmen from 2014 until 2017, and a member of the Roles and Responsibilities strategy working group in 2019. You can read more from me in my blog (2014–2022) and on Twitter or Mastodon.
