About me

My home wiki is the English Wikipedia, which I have been editing since March 2005 under the username "the wub". I often dabble in other projects too.

I currently live in London, England. When not working on Wikimedia-related stuff (or attending meetups!) I enjoy travelling, origami, and playing guitar badly.

My work

In 2011 I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as a Production Coordinator for the annual fundraiser. In April 2012 I became a Community Fellow for 6 months, working on a project to improve Wikipedia's help documentation. Now I have returned to the world of fundraising.

I mostly work on implementation and testing of banners, donation pages, and emails.

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.
