What I do

I work on MediaWiki. Since mid-2010, I have been working for the Wikimedia Foundation as a software engineer. Before that, I volunteered my time for MediaWiki and have been a member of our open source community since 2008.

Before coming to the Foundation, I've done configuration management work for a Fortune 500 financial services company and interned for my local government's IT office.

My proficiencies are in open source technologies and web applications, primarily the LAMP stack. I also have experience with Python, Java, and a bit of C#/.NET (it's been years).

My full resume is available as a PDF.
