ENS name: jvanhorsen.eth
My reasons for wanting to be a delegate:
What I lack in raw web3 technical knowledge, I make up for in leadership, professional experience and a prolific desire for holistic design and problem-solving. This is a project that needs strong minds behind it, to not only help shape and direct its evolution, but who possess the vision, to not only see what it can become, but have both the technical understanding, and forward thinking strategy to take it where it needs to go.
I think I would be a strong delegate, and would work hard to both represent the thoughts and ideas of the ENS community, as well as be willing to make the difficult decisions that would be best for the mass adoption of this standard, that may not always align 100% with the demands of the vocal minority.
Thanks for your consideration.

My web3 qualifications / skills:
I’ve been involved in the web space since '96 when I first began to learn HTML & CSS. Since that time I have never stopped learning web technologies, and creating experiences in the space. Blockchain technologies first caught my attention about 6 years ago, with the launch of Ethereum, and the idea of smart contracts and DApps. I’ve been following closely every since.
Earlier this year I learned of ENS and immediately secured a domain recognizing the potential this service holds. I believe this is the future, and would love to be involved in helping shape its direction.
In terms of experience, I have launched my own nft project called The Hexd (thehexd.com), where I handled all aspects of the creation, development and deployment of the art, ipfs and contracts.
