== ENS name ==
== My reasons for wanting to be a delegate ==
I am a big believer in the future of web3 and leaving centralized platforms in the past. ENS is a key part of web3 infrastructure and will be the face of every web3 user. I think we have an insane opportunity here to build a better internet and I would love to contribute and help bring it to the first billion users.
Identity and specifically ENS already does and will continue to play a vital role in web3. We all currently have online identities but we have never had the opportunity to actually own and take control of our online identities until ENS. Twitter owns our Twitter usernames, they can remove your whole identity from their platform and furthermore a Twitter username is only really useful on Twitter and if your Twitter username is taken on another platform then you will have to use a different identity, we need uniformity.
Personal identity is a fundamental human right and ENS is a public good, I believe everyone in the world should be able to own an ENS name representing their online identity and never have to worry about not being in control of that identity.
Furthermore, I am a huge supporter of Sign in with Ethereum, the login interface of web3, ENS are helping to build this and integrate with it.
== My view on each section of the proposed ENS Constitution 104 ==
Name ownership is an absolute right - Agree
ENS governance should have no ability to prevent someone from registering/renewing/transferring a name.
Registration fees exist as an incentive mechanism - Agree
There is already a problem with “squatters” registering speculative names in the hopes of being able to sell them in the future however, registration fees are a good first step in preventing this.
Income funds ENS and other public goods - Agree
I think being a public good itself, ENS should also support other public goods and teams within web3.
If the web3 space grows, so will ENS.
ENS Integrates with the global namespace - Agree
This is vital for mainstream adoption of .eth
== My web3 qualifications / skills ==

- Have moderated in many crypto communities and beta tested many platforms/products
- Took a year out of uni to work on frontend at Monolith
