Open Technology and Culture
HacDC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit hackerspace in Washington D.C. that aims to improve the world by creatively rethinking technology. I've been a member since 2014 and I am currently serving as President on the 2015 Board of Directors.
KDE is an international community that develops free and open software for desktop and portable computing. I was involved in (and later led) the KDE Usability Project from 2004-2012 and served on the KDE e.V. board of directors from 2009-2012.
Kubuntu is an operating system that provides the KDE suite of software in a user-friendly Linux distribution. I provided usability and design support from 2006-2011 and served on the Kubuntu Council from 2008-2010.
Open Usability is an organization that offered expertise to improve the usability and design of open source projects. From 2006-2011 I helped support many open source projects in their efforts to integrate usability and design principles into their software. I was a mentor (2007-2009, 2011) and program coordinator (2009) for the OpenUsability Season of Usability, a short-term internship-style mentoring program that matched early-career designers to work with open source projects.
