I want to further the cause of FreeBSD, and specifically make FreeBSD development go forward in an as smooth and high-quality fashion as possible.

I try to be a voice of reason, providing balanced input to make decisions go the right way (in each individual's estimation.) I dislike 'persuasive writing', preferring careful presentation that sum up both sides of an issue. I hope to make core work more smoothly and more balanced than it would without me, thus giving the same effects to FreeBSD as a whole.

I bring some board experience with me; I am presently a member of the board of 3 companies and one voluntary organization (of some 4000 members).
