Why are you applying?
The DAO Committee is essential and acts as Decentraland’s lifeline. I want to be a part of an exceptional team in which I can leverage the skills I possess in government consulting, project management, and leadership skills I obtained from the United States Army as a Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO). As an NCO, it was my duty to provide inspiration, purpose, motivation, and direction to the troops under my leadership as well as serve as a liaison for interagency joint task exercises. I believe my wide-ranging skill-set will help the DAO Committee to achieve its mission and objectives.
What is your history with both Decentraland and Decentraland’s DAO?
I first entered this space in January 2022 and have been actively engaged within the community for over 11 months. I have been involved with many events and have supported different organizations as well as artists and creators within this space.
My first big event was attending the MetaParty Fashion week as a content creator showcasing my first publication “Cyber Ninja Collection”. It was such a unique event, and the opportunities to connect with community leaders in this space led to further opportunities and connections. Since then, I have published 3 more collections and collaborated with multiple artists to publish their collections as well.
In Spring 2022, I applied to “The Decentraland Report” as a reporter and onboarded with the team at the end of April 2022. Thus far, I have conducted over 26 streams, including interviews with community leaders, organizations, and events within this space.
During this time, I have also created a YouTube channel and TikTok account to capture and highlight content occurring within Decentraland with the aim of attracting quality users to the community.
On August 2022, I applied to become a DAO Delegate, and to date, I have voted on over 70 DAO proposals.
As of September 2022, I onboarded with the MetaParty team and has been collaborating with events and create a strategic vision on how to approve MetaParty and provide an immersive experience to Decentraland.
Lastly, I support many creators within this space by purchasing their wearables as well as promoting their giveaways via Twitter. I also do my best to attend many of the community leaders’ Twitter spaces to stay informed of the current climate and culture within Decentraland.
What skills, qualifications, and experience will you bring to the committee?
In my current role as a Management Analyst, I oversee many day-to-day operations in the contract I support in the federal government. My most recent successful project of note was the completion of an interagency conference that was attended by federal agencies and SLTT stakeholders from the emergency responder community (including EMS, Fire, and LEs) as well as international partners from the UK and Germany.
Key Leader Engagements (KLEs):
During my role as a Civil Affairs Specialist, we have been trained under the SWTG (Special Warfare Training Group) framework on how to engage with key leaders with the goal of effectively coordinating negotiations and extracting information to support follow on missions. KLEs are crucial because they enable individuals to truly understand the art of proper negotiation, which includes building rapport, information gathering, and knowing your audience.
In my current job role as a Management Analyst, one of my tasks is to ensure our travel budget for the federal clients and contractors does not go over the allocated annual budget. I provide accurate cost estimates upon request, leveraging the GSA per diem rates, and making sure that all clients and contractors supporting the contract can attend conferences and meetings for the fiscal year.
Can you commit at least 5 hours per week to the DAO?
Yes and contingent on the mission, I can commit to offering more hours than the bare minimum.
Provide links to any relevant social media profiles or other information that will help the community when evaluating candidates.
Provide a list of two references, at least one of which is in the Decentraland community that can attest to your character and/or commitment to Decentraland.
