# Nice to meet you!
I want to get to know people active in the OpenRefine community and am always open for a (virtual) cup of coffee/tea. You can book an appointment with me via https://calendly.com/sfauconn (don't hesitate, just do it!)
In these meetings, I'm interested in the following questions.
This is very flexible. By all means, please (also) propose topics **you** would like to talk about.
* Could you tell a bit about yourself?
* What has brought you to the OpenRefine community?
* What have you been doing / working on in the OpenRefine community so far?
* What is your opinion about OpenRefine in its present form? (can be about any topic: governance, community, funding, the code base, the people involved, the users OpenRefine is (not) serving...)
* Are there aspects to OpenRefine that you would like to be more involved in? Or less?
* If you are an active OpenRefine user and/or frequently interact with end users: can you tell me about your / this community's use cases and needs?
* If you would have the power to change one thing about OpenRefine, what would it be? (can again be very broad)
* Which other people should I talk with?
* Do you otherwise recommend any resources, communities, ... I (and OpenRefine in general) should investigate (better)?
* Anything you want to ask me?
* Anything else you want to share?
Our conversations are confidential. I will take notes, but only for personal purposes. I would really appreciate an honest and frank conversation!
Thank you for your time! I really appreciate this.

# About me
I am [Sandra Fauconnier](https://www.linkedin.com/in/sandrafauconnier/), Belgian citizen in the Netherlands. In February 2022 I started working part-time as OpenRefine's Project Director (see the [job advertisement](https://openrefine.org/blog/2021/11/05/Project-director.html) for an overview of what this role entails).
I'm trained as an art historian. Although I consider myself a power user, and I am very interested in digital technology, I am not a developer. I've worked on digital and video projects in the cultural sector for over 20 years now. In the mid 2000s I became an active Wikimedian (focus on Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons). With that hat on, I have worked on quite a few partnerships with the art, museum and libraries sectors. I've also been employed with the Wikimedia Foundation, on the [project that integrated structured (linked) data into Wikimedia Commons](https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Structured_data), Wikipedia's media repository.
I started using OpenRefine around 2015, and use it on a nearly daily basis. I am very interested in learning how people in various sectors use OpenRefine, how we can make OpenRefine even better and more useful to more people, and how I can do my part in making its community grow and thrive.
