Short personal pitch
I am driven by the need to increase communication and collaboration in the space.
I have a deep interest in the blockchain space and am looking to maximize the impact my time, contributions, and the contributions of others may have.
I am hands-on and I need to see code. Lots of it.
I also have a strong need to listen and represent. I always look for ways to create consensus and consult others.
