Hi, my name is Matthew Roth. I'm a writer living in the Glen Park neighborhood of San Francisco. I was born in Santa Barbara, California, and lived the early part of my life in the northeastern part of Nevada, in Elko County. The closest town was Wells, Nevada, where I went to middle school. I later lived in Park City, Utah, where I went to high school and where I learned to ski pretty well. I have also lived in New York City, New York, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

This is my personal Commons account, where I'm posting photos I take outside of any professional capacity.

I currently work as the Global Communications Manager at the Wikimedia Foundation. You can contact me at or through my discussion page at Matthew (WMF) for anything related to the Foundation. Edits to articles or uploads of other media from this account are done in my individual, personal capacity.
