Short personal bio

I am a Strategy & Operations Manager at ConsenSys on the ConsenSys Quorum team (fka PegaSys team). I joined ConsenSys three years ago. A few of my focus areas at ConsenSys include, community management activities for Hyperledger Besu, managing some of our strategic partnerships, and supporting product launch activities and initiatives. I led the initiative to gain approval and onboard Hyperledger Besu, the Java-based Enterprise Ethereum client, into the Hyperledger community and I managed the project's activities to help it gain active status. Prior to joining the blockchain world, I was a consultant in the financial services industry at KPMG.

Short personal pitch

Over the past two years since ConsenSys and Hyperledger Besu joined Hyperledger, I have witnessed exciting community collaboration and have been inspired by the breadth of activities Hyperledger fosters. Hyperledger has also proven its willingness to continuously improve and challenge its assumptions. I have personally enjoyed being a member of the Technical Steering Committee for the past year, I was a member of the Global Forum Planning Committee in 2020, and I currenlty sit on the Diversity Civility and Inclusion Working Group. I believe I can provide a fresh perspective to the Technical Steering Committee by acting as a community-centric voice as well as provide lessons learned and best practices from the Ethereum ecosystem. As a TSC member, I also enjoy promoting diversity and inclusion efforts as well as amplify voices from the community.
