Biography

Larissa works on the Mozilla project, where after having led product management process change, she has shifted to leading contributior and pathway development on the community building team, which seeks to change the community building culture for the better and grow Mozilla’s global contributor base.
Prior to joining Mozilla, Larissa was the first (and only) Product Manager at Internet Systems Consortium, an open source public benefit organization which is the creator and maintainer of BIND, the DNS software which serves 80% or more of the nameservers on the internet. She lives in Santa Cruz, California, with her family. When she is not working on open source projects, she likes to garden and sing the blues.
