Hello! I’m Dmitry, and I’m a software enthusiast living in Boston, Massachusetts. By day, I work for the Wikimedia Foundation (the nonprofit organization behind Wikipedia), leading the development of the Wikipedia Android app. And by night, I develop software for digital forensics and data recovery. I’m passionate about delivering products that carry broad impact, and are used by as many people as possible. My focus is on clean and minimal user interfaces, and of course clean and maintainable code.

Some more information about me:


  • Mushroom foraging

  • Celery
  • A closed mind

I am not a patent attorney. That would be the other Dmitry Brant. Although I do have some patents of my own.
