About me

My name is actually Keegan. I've been an editor on the English Wikipedia since 2005, an administrator since 2006. I'm also an Oversighter and CheckUser on the English Wikipedia. Globally I'm an OTRS administrator and a member of the Communications Committee. I am an encyclopedia geek, which is how I wound up here both as a volunteer and working with Wikimedia.

I worked for the Wikimedia Foundation on Fundraising 2010 as a contractor on outreach to non-English Wikimedia projects. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the w:University of Tennessee-Chattanooga in History.

My work

My job is to engage and empower volunteers to assist their communities with the development and deployment of software built for MediaWiki by the Wikimedia Foundation. I am an English speaker, but if you need to communicate with me in any other language I have the resources available to talk to you however you are most comfortable.
Disclaimer: Although I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, contributions under this account do not necessarily represent the actions or views of the Foundation unless expressly stated otherwise. For example, edits to articles or uploads of other media are done in my individual, personal capacity unless otherwise stated.
