Rob has been active editing Wikipedia since 2004, with a special focus on arts, library science, and history topics. He’s volunteered to serve Wikipedia in numerous roles, including as co-editor-in-chief of the community newspaper the Signpost, a coordinator for the Wikipedia Library, an administrator, a board member for Wikimedia D.C., and recently lead organizer and communications chair for WikiConference North America 2016. Outside his Wikipedia work, Rob is a university librarian who has many years of experience supporting student research and teaching media literacy to students. His unique combination of university library work and Wikipedia experience make him a great fit for helping answer student questions, provide feedback on student drafts, and otherwise support student editors in our Classroom Program as a Wikipedia Content Expert.
In his free time, Rob enjoys hiking and visiting museums in strange cities.
