Former Rep

This Rep has been part of the program from 15 August 2012 to 02 June 2017

After March 2, 2015 I will be taking a temporary hiatus from my volunteer Mozilla Reps activities within North America. I will remain actively involved in Mozilla Reps through my role on the l10n drivers team.

I'm a Localization Engineer on the Mozilla l10n drivers team. I'm all about sustaining and adding to our current localization offerings for Firefox. I work on making localization for Firefox desktop and Firefox for Android easier through communication, planning, and 1-on-1 mentoring. I try to bridge the communication gap between Mozilla and the various localization communities. I also lead the design and implementation of a few Mozilla l10n tools.

I'm also a Mozilla volunteer in my free time. I founded the Mozilla Utah community, which has been growing rapidly since it's beginning in 2013. I contribute to es-MX localization, privacy, and Webmaker.

I'm also a super language/culture geek. I'm fluent in Spanish and English and conversational in Brazilian Portuguese. I've casually studied Swedish, Icelandic, and Hindi but I would love to add them to my roster of linguistic fluency.
