I was born in Ukraine but grew up mostly in the United States (in such far-flung, exotic places as Los Angeles, Seattle, Mississippi, New Orleans, and Boston). I studied languages and literature in college and grad school and am a proud polyglot and bibliophile.
I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2010 as a research fellow. I co-managed the 2011 Wikimedia Summer of Research and became a staff member in fall of 2011. Since fall of 2012, I've been a member of the Product engineering team.
When I'm not working for Wikimedia, I'm editing Wikipedia as a volunteer. When I'm not doing that, you'll probably find me riding around Berkeley on my motorcycle.
I'm currently the product manager for the mobile web features team.
