I want to help people and do good things. I have spent my career working at some of the largest firms in the world. I spent 4.5 years launching and building EVs at Tesla from the ground up. I sourced everything from cardboard boxes to rolls of aluminum and helped build 3 factories across the world. I am not here for an ego boost or clout, I firmly believe in the power of blockchain and the utility of NFTs and I want to take my business acumen and personable nature and bring people together to change the digital world for the better.
My motivation for being an ApeCoin DAO Special Council members stems from the community. I love the people who I have met along my BAYC journey and I want to see this continue to be successful. I fully believe in “the team” mindset and only together can we make this dream reality. Current shortcomings with the DAO have been caused by communications and this is a personal area that I think I can bring great value to. I view this opportunity humbly as a chance to bridge Crytpo and continue our quest for adoption and success.
I have spent 5 years working in operations and supply chain at Tesla and 8 years prior working in sales and business development. I graduated with a Masters from one of the most accomplished universities in the world. During my time at Tesla, I helped source various scopes, services, and products which exposed me to different facets of global supply chains. I negotiated and implemented over 200 contracts and service agreements while saving Tesla millions in opex spend. I firmly believe the skills and network I developed during my time can help the ApeCoin DAO continue to grow and succeed.
