Hello! I'm Julie. My username is JSFarman.

I co-founded Wikimedians of Los Angeles in 2017 with StaceyEOB. We've had some amazing events, including Wikipedia Day(s), Wiknics, and Art+Feminism editathons. We have plans! They may or may not include Sock Puppet Talk Page Theater, which officially debuted at WikiConference North America at MIT in 2019.

I mainly contribute content to Wikipedia-en, although I'm trying to learn more about/contribute to Wikidata. I've gone to two conferences, and I'm looking forward to attending more.

My background/expertise/interest is in music, record labels, media and advertising, and the early internet (people, not tech). Writers, journalists, visual artists. Old school Hollywood, and people behind the scenes in entertainment, particularly music, and particularly women.

On Wikipedia, I'm active in AfC, NPP, and Women in Red. I get overly excited about DYK. I'm involved in Art + Feminism, and I participate in edit-a-thons and meetups when I can. I've happily taught a handful of people how to contribute to Wikipedia IRL, and more than a handful online.
