Why are you running for the Community Council?

  • While my core competency is in Finance, my true passion lies in building things. For this reason, I have gravitated towards technology-driven startups on the forefront of innovation (and sometimes disruption). Doodles is one of those companies, and the Doodlebank is intended/positioned to help bring such innovations to life.

  • I am a closet entrepreneur who has built three mobile apps and single-handedly created a 10k item generative NFT project in my spare time. I did this out of personal interest and curiosity. I figure that if you really want to understand something, you should just trying doing it. I believe I can bring this entrepreneurial spirit to life as a member of the council, with the intension of creating value for OGs and newcomers alike.

  • Having worked for several startups, I have extensive knowledge in best practices for ideating revenue models, creating structure, identifying efficiencies, managing people, and thriving in team-based environments. I think this lends well to Doodles, and am confident I would make for a valued addition to the council.

  • I love Doodles, and am eager to help creators maximize value for the overall project and community. I have a distinct interest supporting the OG collection, and want to ensure all boats rise with the tide. LFG

I’ve worked with John for a few years in Web3 during the height of the ICO craze.

We also built a startup together and he’s a great friend I can personally vouch for.

The CFO I’d call on anytime I start something and I’d be thrilled to work with him on improving the Doodlebank.

Merlin knows he’s an ideal fit for this. You have my wand good sir


Such a strong background and good dood in general!

Thanks Eyal. Really appreciate the good words! :pray:t3:

Thank you, much. Let’s do this!!

Let’s see what kind liberties this role will be extended. That said, my ultimate goal is to protect the fund, help support proposals that will lift the project - namely OG doodles, and provide top quality reporting and forecasting of royalties from funded projects.


John, we haven’t had the chance to speak but like Lifts said, your reputation proceeds you. Very stacked resume, I think you’re a great fit for this position.
