I’m running to increase efficiencies in the DAO. My primary goal is to use my analytical skills to decrease the amount of time between council’s review of the AIP and a community vote.
Since MAYC mint day, I’ve been a member of the club. My goal is to use the skills I’ve gained through lawyering (i.e. efficiently analyzing high volumes of information) to decrease the amount of time between council’s review of the AIP and a community vote. This is turn will allow more AIPs to be processed and voted on. I also intend to increase transparency and advocate for positions that favor members of the community that aren’t whales.
I am in-house counsel for a fortune 300 company. My experiences as a lawyer for a major corporation will help me effectively analyze the AIPs to allow a quick turnaround for a community vote. My legal skills and familiarity with complex laws and regulations in turn provide me with the experience to implement the DAO’s procedures and guidelines. As a lawyer and passionate community member, I have the relevant and necessary experiences to administer DAO proposals and serve the vision of the community.
With respect to governance, I worked on several successful political campaigns and have ties to a few politicians with seats in Congress. I’ve participated in a number of DAOs since joining the NFT community in May 2020 and held several governmental-esque positions throughout my undergraduate and legal schooling. With respect to DAO improvement, the time between when a community members submits their AIP and the time the at-large community is able to vote on that proposal is far too long. I want draft a refined framework that provides rules and regulations that will more effectively establish how the DAO operates. I have worked with several regulatory bodies throughout my time in law school and as a lawyer. I also want to contribute to the council by taking on most of the heavy analyzing and reading that is required for getting an AIP to community vote.
My passion for the BAYC Community is strong. My skills as a lawyer makes me highly qualified to make the DAO more efficient and reduce the time in takes for the community to vote on an approved AIP. Lastly, it is important to note that I’m not a whale and I intend to use this position to advocate those in our community who are sometimes overlooked.
