Phil Button is the name, filling buttons is the game. Usually it's my own button; if you're catching my drift. On Discord many of you know me as Romeshow. I am an extremely passionate owner of 3 apes, 12 pandas, 1 egg, and have been involved in the Degeniverse since late November.
From the Ape's mouth Why I want to be on the Student Council
I want to help in the development and growth of the Degeniverse brand. IRL, I am a Sr. Sales Engineer with a background in engineering but a love for sales and people (and of course, NFTs). As a member of the Student Council, I plan on using my sales and leadership skills to promote our brand to outside eyes while also bringing our community members closer to one another.
A few questions we have What do you think about....
- What do you love most about the Degeniverse?
What is there not to love? We have, without a doubt, the best art on Solana - Apes, Pandas, and Eggs alike. We have the best artist in Mono. The best dev in Pit. And most importantly, the best community that is all you Degens. I love more than anything how passionate everyone is about all things Degeniverse. Sure, we poke fun of one another and we are always debating who is better, Pandas or Apes? But at the end of the day, it is nothing more than an amazing sibling rivalry. I know every one of us would go to battle for a member of our family in the Degeniverse and that is what I truly love most about this community. I hope I can be apart of the reason that we continue to grow closer and become the biggest brand in the ecosystem.
- 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 glad you asked. Currently, I am a Sr. Sales Engineer at my IRL job. As an engineer, I have the ability to think critically and analyze situations from a logical standpoint. Even more important, I have some of the soft skills that are harder to teach. As I mentioned, I love helping people and learning about what gets someone up in the morning (not your wood, you sickos). I plan on using my skills to be a leader in the community and bring our Ape, Panda, and Egg holders closer to one another while trying to bring more unique holders into this environment. At the end of the day, everything is more fun when you have people to celebrate with, so I want to get as much exposure to this brand as I can.
- What would a successful 120 day term look like to you, i.e. what do you hope the council will be able to accomplish?
At the end of my term, I would love to be able to look back and say that our Degeniverse is a tighter knit group than it was before I came around. My overall goal is to help with the communication of our members to our top dogs (welcome, Sea Eoh) as well as making sure that we are growing everyday. The Degeniverse has given so much to me, and I am ready to give back.
