I got involved in MediaWiki around March 2006 in order to create Mikomos which I maintain to this day. I am very proud of the site, but please don't judge me by it! Much of the code running on it now was written when I was a floundering beginner. My time in general is very limited so the wiki format was ideal. I have contributed very little content to the site.

The skills I learned enabled me to start some MediaWiki consulting on my own. In 2009 I was proud to hang that up to join a new consulting company WikiWorks, founded by Yaron Koren. I am currently the Lead Project Manager at WikiWorks.

In 2018, I also became Lead Project Manager at WikiTeq.
