Hey there! My name is Gareth (degensoldev) I am a self taught Web2 developer with 14 years experience in the industry. Only recently have I moved into the NFT space after finally choosing a Degenerate Ape a few months ago. I maybe new to the community but with that I bring fresh ideas and bags of enthusiasm to help move the DAOO in a positive way.

From the Ape's mouth Why I want to be on the Student Council

Following on from the launch of the members site I would like to build a space for members to connect, learn and grow. While Discord is a great tool for day to day communicating it has its limitations. Imagine a space where members can connect, learn new skills and start helping each other out. We started by getting you signed up and showing on a map but that was just the aperitif. Lets see what else we can cook up...

  • Who would like a public profile page where you can show off some or all of your fine collection?

  • What about a place to share your skills and get in touch with fellow Degens who need a certain skill like yours?

  • Now let's talk merch, how about we look at building a place to buy DAOO merch.

While we can't do everything I'd like to do in 120 days we can start making some real progress in these areas and more.

A few questions we have What do you think about....

What do you love most about the Degeniverse?

The art and the community. The Degeniverse is really exciting as it has the potential to grow in so many ways, it isn't just a nice piece of art. One day I would like to see games, movies and much more.

What skillset or experience do you have that sets you apart from other candidates, and how do you plan to utilize it for the benefit of the community?

I am a builder of web things. I have helped to build communities in the web development space and it's my passion. By chance, or some might say fate, JSB and myself have worked together in a previous life. I feel that with two developers on the council we can start to provide tooling and expertise which will attract more builders to our DAOO and the Degeniverse.

What would a successful 120 day term look like to you, i.e. what do you hope the council will be able to accomplish?

I would like to have a platform and structure in place that will allow members to feel like the DAOO is somewhere they are proud to say they are a part of.

JSB and myself have started to lay the foundations for builders and creatives to start becoming more involved. This foundation is just the start, with some focused effort and community ideas we can help build the benchmark for what DAO's will look like.
