I've been a Wikimedian since 2005. See my enwiki userpage, User:Quiddity, for details about me, links that I regularly use, and most of my volunteer contributions. I prefer to use the pseudonym "Quiddity" throughout, as a single name is easier for everyone to follow, plus it's good to promote a culture of acceptance for pseudonymity (as cover for those who need it).
I live in Canada, and am interested in anything related to words, felines, connections, documentation, and design.

Currently, I am: working with the m:Abstract Wikipedia team; answering/triaging emails to a few WMF contact addresses; and assorted backup-work and smaller/side-projects.
Background: After 8 years of volunteering, I was hired by the Foundation in September 2013. From then until June 2018, I was working as a Community Liaison, helping to ensure open lines of communication between our editing community and the developers, and surfacing issues that are important to our editors. (Essentially, that means I tried to read everything (twice), to point the staff and the communities towards documentation or discussions that need attention and input, to investigate problems, and to compile potential solutions). From July 2018, I have been working as a Documentation Specialist, working to help advise on, organize, and assist with, the voluminous documentation that we need and have.
I have previously worked: with the Collaboration team (on Notifications and Flow); on Hovercards; with Community Tech on the Community Wishlists; on Movement Strategy phase 1; with Hackathon organizers; with the Wikimedia Cloud Services team on documentation and comms; with the Reading Web team on the Desktop Improvements project; with the Advancement dept on documentation and comms; and on various other endeavours and side-projects.
