Hello everyone, most of you probably know me only by my web3 identity as a premier thought leader and awe-inspiring persona. However, in my web2 life, I currently lead the Staffing and Talent Acquisition teams for over 1,200 employees at a healthcare company in the greater Chicagoland area. At the beginning of the pandemic, I worked as a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator before transitioning to my current, more corporate-level position. Working in healthcare throughout the pandemic, especially in the staffing field, forced me to be adaptable and creative to ensure that ultimately the residents we served are continuously cared for. When failure is not an option, you learn what you are truly capable of.
Additionally, I started my own small business late last year and opened two vocational schools in the Chicago area to train CNAs and Nurses. Starting a small business has been an immense learning experience for me, and I am beginning to love the journey.
I am also fortunate enough to serve as the Vice President of a New York registered 501c3 with an annual budget of $500,000. We started just six years ago and have raised and allocated roughly $2,400,000. My primary responsibilities are donor relations and events. Giving back to my community has always been something I care deeply about.
I believe i can leverage my wide ranging experience to continue pushing this community forward and rewarding the amazing people that make Doodles my home.
Why are you running for the Community Council?
As a degen trader at heart, this community has always been different for me. The people, the vibe, my fellow kings and queens in Rainbow Hall are all like family to me. Having been in pretty much every other prominent web3 community and a self-proclaimed veteran of the space, I want to bring my knowledge, perspective, and understanding to this council.
When we think about rewards, what we really want is to gain something from holding. That something can mean something different to each person. Most people will tie rewards directly to a monetary benefit.
However, I disagree. Yes, we would all like free money, but there are a ton of tangible rewards that we can implement to enhance the average doodler’s experience. My vision is simple: make the PFP more than a JPG. Create an emotional attachment that goes beyond “numba go up.” Whether we rethink the collector experience and build out unique holder pages complete with meme/gif makers with your doodler, plug-n-play wallpapers and banners to showcase your collection, we can do a lot to add to the customer experience. Maybe we run some giveaways for custom commissions of some doodles from the amazing community artists. Make it more than a PFP.
There are also physical items and experiences we can offer, like Something in The Water, JKB at NYC, and increasing holder meetups. A doodles T-shirt competition (community votes best design, free claimable T-shirt for each doodle) is another idea.
Another idea is to have the DoodleBank support what our Doodles support. Whether it be the Make-A-Wish Foundation or the Red Cross, an idea I had was for the community to submit a non-political cause they care about, and the Doodlebank can match a few donations. We can stand alongside our community members doing good things in this world.
Lastly, as a Doodles Alpha/Rainbow Hall OG, I believe we can do a better job of 1) leveraging the brand to keep bring great opportunities to our holders and 2) doing better by the Rainbow Leads who have worked for the community for almost two years. If elected, I would like to rethink the way some of this is currently structured and make sure we are properly rewarding those who keep rewarding us.
I have been a champion of this brand since reveal day, and I love this community. Being able to plan how best to reward my fellow holders would be an honor and a privilege. Thank you for taking the time to consider my application.
