How will you contribute to the board
I hope to serve the board in two specific ways:
1 – My experience in the funding space will help me serve the board by assisting the OSI in fundraising activities.
2 – My experience working in the space of open source sustainability will help me serve the board by informing the OSI’s advocacy work.
Why you should be elected
I am a senior technologist with more than 20 years experience working in some of the industry’s biggest tech companies. For the last ten years, my work has focused entirely on helping my employers show up as mindful, intentional partners with the people, projects, and foundations that make open source work. While I have experience developing these partnerships from within my employers, I also wish to better understand how to develop strong partnerships from within the foundations that we all serve and support. By serving the board of the OSI, I will learn how to be a better partner.
