About me

I am a recent graduate from Michigan State University, College of Law and am hoping to practice intellectual property law in California. I am excited to be working with the Wikimedia Foundation and learning more about open-source communities.

My work

As a legal fellow at the Wikimedia Foundation, I will concentrate on ways to develop and improve the interplay between legal considerations and community needs in a variety of contexts, including consultations on legal issues and policies as well as legal training for community groups critical to our mission. Additionally, I get to explore how intellectual property, privacy, and cyber law effect the functioning of an open-source community organization.

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.
