My name is Mehan Jayasuriya and I am a technologist and writer who lives in Portland, Oregon. At present, I am a program officer at Mozilla, where I run programs that help grow the open source ecosystem and a contributor at Pitchfork, where I write primarily about hip-hop. In the past, I have worked for Tumblr, General Assembly and Public Knowledge and held teaching and research roles at NYU's Department of Computer Science and Wagner School of Public Policy. My writing on music, culture, technology and policy has also been published by The Guardian, Gizmodo and MTV Hive.
