I am running for Special Council because I believe wholeheartedly in the Guiding Principles of ApeCoin DAO, and aim to demonstrate them in everything I do as a hard-working prospective member and representative of my community. As a dedicated and committed community member, I aim to bring a diverse background and skill set with a strong knowledge of business, finance, and education to the Council. As a man of color with a registered disability, my experience is unique and can speak to the marginalized and underrepresented members of our community. I am an active daily participant in this ecosystem, who is hard-working, dedicated and who has the trust and respect of his peers.
In a world fraught with fraud, nepotism and lack of transparency, I aim to be a beacon of trustworthiness and dependability as I bring those attributes to the Special Council. I believe every voice should have the opportunity to be heard, and I’d love to have a role in positively representing the community while pushing forward ApeCoin DAO into the next step of our journey.
With an MBA as well as a Master’s Degree in Education, I am intimately familiar with business and finance as well as acknowledging the importance of education and public transparency. From financial statement analysis (P&Ls, Balance Sheets, End-of-Year reporting), to taxes, to AR/AP and payroll, I’ve been involved in virtually every aspect of business finance for the better part of a decade. My experience in this, coupled with my passion for engaging the human side of an otherwise ever-digitized world, makes me an ideal candidate for this role.
As a member of ApeCoin DAO, I’ve been an active participant in its structure and organization, voting and reading up on live proposals, and have authored an AIP. I have a number of ideas for DAO improvement, including suggestions regarding the transition toward a truly decentralized organizational structure, as well as a more autonomously operational format.
With one of the most diverse backgrounds and skill sets of any potential candidate, my passion for financial transparency and organization is rivaled only by my passion for the advancement of our ApeCoin community. I am an ideal fit for this role as Special Council member, and I implore you to strongly consider my nomination. Thanks to all involved for your time and consideration.
