Larissa (Brown) Shapiro

I work to build a more inclusive and diverse Mozilla for all

Bio

I work to build a more inclusive and diverse Mozilla for all of us to share.

I'm into infrastructure, open source, community, mentoring, parenting, and gluten free cookies. While I got more closely involved in Mozilla this year (as staff), I first used Netscape projects in 1996, and Firefox from the very beginning. I've been part of open source communities for many years, starting with Open Solaris and then BIND and ISC DHCP as well as the Mozilla Project.

I am in the Mountain View space Mondays, San Francisco some Wednesdays or Thursdays, and otherwise in Santa Cruz. I do not usually work from the beach, but you never know. I can often be found walking there at lunch or in the evening.
