I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects (see my personal account). In May 2012 I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as the "Product Manager" for VisualEditor, and I'm now lead for the Editing department.
My job is to help make sure the Editing department understand what the community wants and needs, is focussed on the things that matter, and is engaging with and understood by the community. My work covers the visual and wikitext editors, as well as several dozen other tools.
