2. Relevant Biography
a) Please refer to the ARIN Advisory Council Guidance to the 2023 Nomination Committee in answering this question:
i) Please describe your relevant professional experience and expertise and explain how this background will make you an effective AC member.
I am currently Principal Architect for Data Network Architecture at Crown Castle and have spent almost 17 years in technical roles at multiple Tier 2/3 service providers. In my current position, I have been responsible for setting IP resource allocation and routing policies for a network which has grown from a regional to national carrier and navigated the processes for IPv4 Address acquisition and organizational transfers. In collaboration with internal teams, I design and document architecture standards for data networks.
ii) Attach a resume, curriculum vitae, or other biography highlighting your experience most relevant to the duties of the AC. Do not include your home address or personal contact information on the resume, as it will be made public as part of the election material.
iii) Optionally, you may also include additional web links to external websites (e.g., social media), though not as a substitute for your biography.
b) The role of the Advisory Council is to advise the Board of Trustees on Internet number resource policy and related matters. Describe a similar experience you have had in such an advisory role.
In my current and previous professional roles, I have provided guidance to leadership for internal technical standards and policies for security and regulatory compliance.
a) Please disclose any conflicts of interest you may have, real or perceived, that would impact your ability to perform your duty as a member of ARIN’s Advisory Council. How do you propose to resolve any such conflicts?
b) Are you currently eligible to serve on the Advisory Council according to the Conflicts of Interest Policy?
c) If not currently eligible, how will you become eligible to serve if elected (i.e. “If elected, I will resign from the position of ________ before 31 Dec 2023”). If not applicable, simply enter “N/A”.
d) Describe any limitations on your ability to: attend AC and Public Policy Meetings in person; or serve all of the elected term.
4. Nominee Information
a) Have you attended ARIN meetings or otherwise participated in ARIN activities in the past? What did you find the most rewarding from those meetings or activities? What suggestions for improvement do you have?
I have not attended an ARIN meeting.
b) What areas of Internet number resource policy, if any, need more attention by ARIN; why?
I would like to see ARIN continue and expand advocacy for IPv6 for Enterprise organizations. In my experience, most Enterprises, particularly SMB, face significant cost and complexity to deploy v6 on their networks. Until they see a compelling business case for v6, they will not move forward.
c) Aside from the professional experience and expertise detailed above, describe any other specific skills, background, and/or areas of expertise you believe will assist the Advisory Council in carrying out its duties.
In both my professional and volunteer leadership roles, I regularly engage in outreach and advocacy both in one-on-one settings and more formal presentations.
