About me

I'm a Greek-American born and raised in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. When I'm not coding you'll probably find me at a futsal or soccer game, hanging out with my family, or playing classical kemençe, ney or lavta.

This is my work account, for my personal account please see Kostajh.

My work

I started working with the Wikimedia Foundation in June 2018. I currently work as a software engineer in trust & safety engineering, working with Trust and Safety Tools and Anti-Harassment Tools teams. Previously, I was a software engineer on the Growth team, where I worked on interventions to help retain contributors.

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.
