Background and track record:
Being an Engineer and responsible for Product development from A to Z (12y of seniority), I am aware of all the hurdles and challenges that can be faced on the product journey, especially being customer facing, I learned how to manage expectations and properly communicate concerns, sharing all the possible solutions with related scenarios.

At the same time, I serve as a Council Member of Engineers Trade Unions, which gives me experience in the field of administration and internal communication between different views aiming always to find convergence for a solution.

I started my crypto journey following Gavin Wood activities since 2017. The experience that I have gained over the years and especially serving as CMO at Iceberg Nodes, operating Staking services for Polkadot, Kusama, Moonbeam and all the main parachains, allows me to have a wide perspective and visualize key aspects involved with a new candidate project / program especially in relation with the common good of the network and ecosystem as a whole.
Additionally, being a Moderator I am in continuous contact with the community: this allows me to know the general opinion of the community regarding various topics.
Gathering feedbacks from all the stakeholders is a key aspect to me.

On November 2023 I was elected by Moonbeam Community and since January 2024 I am serving the Treasury Council. Full report about my experience is available here in the forum, but to make a long story short: this experience made me even more convinced about the huge potential of Moonbeam Project simply because I knew “from inside” how great are the People working on it.

Motivation for applying:
I am strongly interested in what is best for Moonbeam especially in view of future challenges/opportunities.
Having served the Council during these months gave me even more motivation because now I know for sure much more than before that this service is Key for the Community.
I trust my judgment and the continuous contact with the community to make the right decisions regarding treasury management.

Conflicts of interest:
I am CMO at Iceberg Nodes, always focusing about Community support on all issues and specifically on the Staking related items.
I report it just for confirmation, but honestly I do not see possible conflicts of interest about it, on the opposite there is a Synergy: staking is healthy only if the network grows strong, and vice-versa.

I’m available for 10-14 hours per week and flexible about timings.

Supporting Info:
All my daily activity on Telegram / Discord & here on MB Forum.
Specifically I report here the link about the post resuming my experience as Treasury Council Member during these past months:

Delegate profile: Delegates of Moonbeam DAO (Delegates of Moonbeam DAO)

Code of Conduct:
I fully share code of conduct principles and I will adhere to it


Just forgot a really important point:
