I live by observation, patience, and lots of trial and error, all of which manifested itself in high school when my friends and I created a Wikipedia entry for a made-up game: "Bubble Burning." While the article lasted no more than two weeks, I was humbled by the time and consensus English Wikipedia dedicated to disprove and--albeit sadly--delete it.
I was born and live on the land of the Ramaytush, Ohlone and Muwekma peoples in the Western United States, with a degree in French-Linguistics from New York University. I now reside on the Canarsie-Munsee Lenape land in the Eastern United States.
As Grants Administrator, I support the Community Resources team to facilitate grants to individuals, groups, and organizations all around the world who are engaged with the Wikimedia projects and movement. Some of my projects include providing research and analysis for the Annual Plan Grants, and now I mainly support the grants process for the Wikimedia Community Fund grant programs.
