Meet & Greet - New Staff & Contributors

(Lucyeoh) #1

This is a space for contributors to introduce new staff to the community at Mozilla!

At every on-boarding session we’re going to be encouraging new staff to jump in here, introduce themselves, and reach out to Mozillians!

Want to be involved?

Introduce yourself here! Don’t forget to share your name, where you live in the world, what you’re working on, and how long you’ve been working with/contributing to Mozilla, and (if you’re open to one-on-one conversations) the best way to contact you!

Moderator’s edit: Please note that this is a public forum and by posting your email address publicly you may start receiving spam. Instead it is recommended to add your Mozillians profile to your Discourse profile, or a link to your Mozillians profile in this thread.

(Spike) #12

I am Chris Foote from London although most people know me as Spike.
My involvement with Mozilla started in 2011 as a local volunteer with the annual Mozilla Festival in London. For the last four years I have been the ‘volunteer coordinator’ - recruiting, training, and organising the 100 or so heroes that help to run the event.
I was lucky enough to be chosen to go to Singapore in January 2016 and am (as well as working on MozFest 2016) working to get MozFest volunteers more involved in other MozThings.
I am also a minor admin on the Mozilla Wiki as well as trying to get involved and contribute to some Participation Working Groups.
