About me

In my free time, I edit Wikimedia projects with the username Spinster. I started contributing to English Wikipedia in 2003. After a hiatus (starting a family), I also became an active Commons editor, was a board member and volunteer for Wikimedia Nederland, and I have been enthusiastically contributing to Wikidata for a few years now. I was a (paid) Wikipedian in Residence in 2014 and am one (part-time) till October 1, 2017.

I'm a Belgian citizen, but I live and work in the Netherlands. I have a Master of Arts in art history from Ghent University, and have worked on various internet and video projects in the Dutch cultural sector.

In my free time, when I'm not editing Wikidata or another Wikimedia project, I like to explore cities, cycle around the Dutch countryside, look at weird contemporary art, or chase snails away from my balcony garden.

My work

I'm Community Liaison for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons - working part time from July-September 2017, and full time starting from October 2017.

For this project, I support the collaboration between the communities (Commons, Wikidata, GLAM…) and the product development teams involved at the Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia Germany. 50% of my work is with the Wikimedia communities; 50% of my work takes place in the Wikimedia Foundation's GLAM team.

In 2017-2020, the project Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons improves Wikimedia Commons, allowing users to better view, translate, search, edit, curate and use media files. To achieve that, the Commons backend is migrated to Wikibase, the same technology used for Wikidata.

You can see my major current tasks on Phabricator.

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.
