I work as product manager for Wikimedia Foundation, where I create new tools to engage Wikipedia users to contribute productively to the site. For example, we are developing the Article Feedback Tool (see our blog post), which enables readers to suggest improvements to Wikipedia article -- and learn to become editors over time. (See separate photo-set on my work at Wikimedia.)

Pictured here in reverse chronological order are many fine members of the Wikipedia community. Lots of smart and friendly folks, who are all working hard to help people freely share knowledge around the world. I am very grateful to be part of this community and look forward to learning a lot and doing some great work together.
