My focus will be on expanding an healthy and vital community and on increasing the impact of OSI, leveraging synergies with potential partners/allies.
I have in depth experience in open source development and in supporting thriving open source communities. I am an experienced leader with a solid technical background and business acumen. I am a good listener and will consider all possible perspectives when making a decision to get the best possible outcome.
