Hello! I’m Ryan, the API3 Marketing team lead. My goal is to maximize adoption of API3.
My background is healthy mix of engineering, marketing, startups, and strategy. I was a professional software developer for more than a decade before moving into marketing and business consulting. I still love to code and do it when I can. As a former professional dev, I can empathize with our primary target users - developers - quite well.
I’ve always been an advocate for open source software, privacy, freedom, and transparency. I began my career hacking the Linux kernel with a particular focus on network protocol research. I have a lot of experience with web APIs. I joined API3 in early 2021 because I believe in the mission and can clearly see the massive opportunity this project represents.
My voting is biased toward getting real Web3 projects using API3 and Airnode in production as soon as possible. I’m relatively experienced compared to many in this young industry. I appreciate the importance of strategy, market positioning, brand awareness, network effect, and product-led growth.
I have demonstrated a willingness to listen to the API3 community and be receptive to feedback. As your delegate, I would be more empowered to represent the best interests of you - the API3 DAO and community.
If this fits your perspective and you don’t want to vote yourself, I ask you to let me be your delegate.
