Following Milton and Martin example let me also introduce myself and why I
want to be a board member

Setting on another threat because Barracuda blocked it.

Just like Martin, I got hooked at OWASP when I attended Blackhat Europe in
April 2012 and guess who introduced me to OWASP about their projects and
documentation : Martin Knobloch

Soon after that conference, I became an OWASP member and started a local
 I have been promoting  OWASP works and projects locally in my community

I started contributing with wiki editing and the Cheat Sheet projects in
September 2012
One of the major contributions I did was setup the first complete draft of
the Filter Evasion Cheat sheet inspired by Rsnake

Since then I have been involved in multiple initiatives and projects such

Support the Project Review initiative since 2013 until 2015, by working

   - 2014-2015==>Configure more than 100 projects on Openhub

   and keep as much a possible a clean inventory

   process to our actual Project coordinator (Claudia)
   - 2014-2015

   develop much further (2015-2016)

Google summer of code support mentor for:

   - OWTF
   - WebGoatPHP
   - PHP security framework

Mentor and co-leader helping promoting the project  . This year the project
was able to be presented at Defcon labs and Blackhat EU 2016

Also, I follow closely Board meetings which I have attend different times
and you can check my comments to board mailing list ;-)

I'm a big  advocate for projects since I consider them an important pillar
in our community because they help bring people together from all over the
world, which help spread the word we do.

and try to be as much responsive when members or leaders asking questions.

*WHY I want to be a board member*
Please, listen to the interviews but apart from that, as someone with a
different ethnicity (Caribbean) and considering that OWASP is a GLOBAL
community , I want to be a board member because I want to support the
diversity within our community .

So far I have been committed to help OWASP, given my possibilities (I live
in an island) and resources with activities that attempt to benefit the
entire community

I consider that everything within OWASP from Chapters, Conferences to
Projects is important, therefore we should try to work more closely and
integrate efforts to reach our goals, no matter our ethnicity, sex, or
country we live

Please vote!
