About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in June 2020 to work on the Okapi project. Previous stints include time working with the US federal government as part of the Obama administration's 18F team, where I launched their 10x program; Code for America; and a couple of my own startups, back in the day. I live in Austin, Texas, with my wife and six-year-old daughter.

My work

My background is in user experience design and product development, but these days I primarily work in business development and financial management, because I like taking money from places that can afford to part with it and giving it to individuals and organizations who can put it to better use.

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.
