Please demonstrate any experience you believe is relevant to this role: Since my early days of involvement in this space i have always looked for ways to contribute/voice my opinion and help projects grow, i have contributed to Wing.Finance, Synthetix , Deus, Risk harbor and Ontology all of which experienced major growth cycles over time. One of the most valuable things you can obtain in this space is heritage and i believe thats something Optimism has been building for some time. with my expertise i think we can grow and navigate our path in an efficient and safe manner.

Please demonstrate expertise relevant to your Council sub-committee: I have spent years watching failed/successful experiments throughout different sectors in the space and understand what has a history of working or failing, there is also a risk taking aspect here and in the past i have been more than willing to think outside of the box while being creative and rational.

Please describe your philosophy on what makes a good Governance Fund grant:
Realistically a good grant returns value in the form of users/engagement and capital inflow, team/culture is also a major factor and our grantees should be held to highest level of standards and ethical practices.

What types of grant applications would you like to see or what RFPs would you create? i would like to see grant applications from educational institutions or large/local businesses as physical integrations increase awareness and grow users from the bottom up. in my opinion it is ideal to formulate growth strategies using unique means, we can achieve that user snowball effect with the right grants and good guidance
