I was the Wikimedian in Residence at the Scottish Libraries and Information Council, working primarily with public libraries in Scotland, between August 2017-April 2018. I was also Resident at Museums Galleries Scotland from January 2015 - July 2016, working nationally to advocate for the use of open knowledge in a heritage context. Project page can be found here.
I got a wee honorable mention in the "Wikimedian of the Year" category in the UK in 2018. Which was affa lovely :)
From December 2016-December 2017 I was the Project Officer for Dig It! 2017. I've worked for music venues, music festivals, heritage organisations, charities, and a bundle of other stuff.
