Motivation:

I am not a lawyer, nor do I have a legal background. I believe that ICANN,

a corporation for the technical coordination of Internet Names and

Numbers, needs more technically oriented members on the board. Currently

4/5 of the board are from a legal background with little or no experience

with CORE Internet protocols or name and number assignments.  I would

truly enjoy representing ASO interests to the ICANN Staff and Board of

Directors.

Simply my goal is as follows:

   I wish to influence ICANN by reducing their budget as much as possible

   while increasing the effectiveness of the organization. I fully believe

   that any fees paid to ICANN should bear a direct relationship to the

   services received by the Supporting Organizations whom fund ICANNs

   operations.
