Short personal pitch
I am interested in enabling and sharing ideas across companies and projects. I have learned the power of collaboration from working with Burrow to create the fabric-chaincode-evm. This component has taught me how to interact and work across projects and companies to build new software and features. Similarly, I have had the opportunity to work with Truffle to enable an integration between Fabric and Truffle. I believe cross project pollination is good for our community and want to continue down that path. Some of the ways I have worked towards this goal is being a technical ambassador for the Hyperledger community as well as mentoring students through the Internship program. I enjoy speaking and teaching others about our Hyperledger Community and the work that I do. I look forward to the opportunity of being a TSC member and working towards diversifying our community.
