A community of technology community managers, leaders, and builders.

New user introductions!



I’m Mohan from Chennai, India. I have been with Symantec for over 5 years now. I’m one of the Administrator for [Norton Community Forum] (http://community.norton.com)

I’ve been in various communities as a contributor/volunteer, I’m really excited and looking forward to learn and share ideas.

Thanks @DasEnergi & @Tony_Weiss for introducing this forum to me. :slight_smile:




I’m Gwen, a Normano-Breton emigrated to Ireland. :yum:

Delighted to be the newest addition to the Symantec Norton Community Forum managed by @DasEnergi and @Tony_Weiss. I look after the French side of things.

On my leisure time, guess what? … I also look after an online community of French speakers who come to Ireland looking for local, current information . My ‘dream’ would be to see the ratio of questions asked / spontaneous participation shift, but alas, it is proving mission impossible!

I hope to find some good tips from this new community, and perhaps share some insights too when I can.

Talk soon.



Hi, my name is Simeon Oriko and I’m the Network Manager at Creative Commons where I manage its Global Community. I’m based in Nairobi, Kenya. I started working in this position in January 2017 so fairly new but I’ve volunteered for the organization for over 6 years.

Over the last year, Creative Commons has been going through a process to revamp it’s community strategy which is currently open for public consultation here: http://consultation.creativecommons.org. Jono contributed to this process at some point so I’ll take a minute to thank him for his valuable insights and contributions.

Glad I found this forum and looking forward to learning and sharing with you all.

Hello! My name is Vanessa and I live and work in Salem, OR. I am responsible for community management on a website created to give educators in Oregon a space to connect, share, and collaborate - OregonEdNet.org. I’ve been involved in community management on a volunteer basis for niche websites in the past, but it’s been a few years and this is the first time that it’s been part of my work. I look forward to learning from more experienced community managers as well sharing my own experiences!

I have to admit that I’m disappointed to find out that CLS has moved from Portland to Austin this year! I’m sure that Austin will be a good time though! :slight_smile:


Good Day,

My name is Kaleena “Rheeya” Narwani. I am new to the world of community management as I have only been working as a Community Manager since the end of January 2017. I aid with program development, website management, and community interactions for the University’s online learning platform for alumni called AlumniU.

I am excited to be here and look forward to working with others as I develop and hone my community management skills.


Hi, I’m Nara Altmann. I’m a chemical engineer with a background in engineering project management and operations. Through my work experience I came to realize that the solution to a problem was very often not limited by technical or scientific understanding but by deficiencies in exchange of information and collaboration. So I’ve recently finished a masters in Information and Knowledge Strategy from University of Columbia.

I want to work helping organizations harness the power of diversity (of all sorts, gender, race, cultural, professional, education, social) in the solution of their problems. Online communities form an integral part of that and I look forward to learning from all of you here!

On the personal side, I am Brazilian but have a piece of my heart in Denver where I live now, and in Australia and Chile where I’ve lived for many years in the past. I have two young kids, a dog and two cats. I enjoy skiing and hiking.
