I go by Selsonblue on Bitcointalk, but Boardwalk is what I go by on most chats now a day.

I wanted to introduce myself and make it known that I would like to be considered for a delegate position on the Lisk network. I realize I am late to the game to start my delegate candidacy, but after reading through other proposals, it became apparent that it would be in the Lisk communities best interest to vote for the people best qualified for the positions and get over the "You vote for me, I vote for you" state-of-mind. This arrangement is flawed and will not ensure the most secure and stable network.
I was a day one ICO participant and have personal interest in seeing this project grow.
That being said, here it is:
I was brought into the cryptoworld during graduate school (around 2011) while doing research on bitcoins blockchain. Ever since then I have been intimately involved in trading, investing, mining, and doing web development and project management tasks for different teams.
Bachelors - Economics and Business Administration
Masters - IT and Systems Management - Network Security
CompTIA Network + and Security + Certification
Loan Officer - Commercial Credit Analyst - Large Global Bank - 2 years
Linux system administrator and security consultant for fortune 500 financial software development company - 2 years
Blockchain Investor Inc. - Social media/Public relations manager - 1 year
As a node delegate foraged funds would be used as follows: (UPDATED - 5/23)
- 35% to Core Lisk Development projects
- 35% to finance a Developer Talent Placement Project - Help recruit, educate, and communicate across various development teams to increase transparency internally on whats being developed.
- 15% held as a node supporter discretionary investment fund - like VC for non-core related development projects
- 15% held for server maintenance and upgrades as needed
My server specs for now- failover server has same specs, and is geographically dispersed:
Delegate node name: useastboardwalk
Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS x64
Internet Link: 3 TB Transfer
RAM: 2GB RAM
HDD: 20GB SSD
I am in the process of evaluating the delegate proposals still and have only settled on a few that I am 100% going to vote for, this list will continue to grow as I review additional apps.
