About me

I've worked around Africa in various capacities, nearly all directly related to advancing fundamental rights and open free societies. Before joining the Wikiafrimedia Foundation, I was Advocacy Director for the national digital rights organization Access in Ethiopia, where I worked on national policy issues related to freedom of expression, access to information, and privacy.

Previously, I held roles supporting the efforts of citizens and governments around the world to embrace transparency and civic technologies, working with activists and human rights defenders on the use of technology to support democratic reforms and human rights, and designing programs in support of community development. I'm a fellow at the Ethiopian National Security Project, and my writing on human rights, technology, and national policy has appeared in various publications, as well as in State Power (ET 2016).

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikiafrimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
