How did you first get involved with the VitaDAO community?
I entered an onboarding call in May 2021 after I did not hear back on my application for the Awareness Working Group. Not long after that, I started helping the awareness efforts, coming up with ideas, and executing them, including editing and distributing a press release for the genesis auction. The rest is history.
Have you always been interested in longevity research?
Ever since I was a child I was fascinated by the idea of life extension and immortality, but I did not know what to do about it. A few years ago, when I became financially free I thought about what’s meaningful in life and I decided to change my career and figure out how to best get involved in longevity.
Can you walk me through what your role inside of VitaDAO entails?
I lead the community building and social media efforts, support the working groups with operations and do whatever needs to be done.
There is no precedent for how a community like VitaDAO functions. What has surprised you most?
The fact that we can actually get stuff done without a hierarchy and the huge number of people that want to get involved every day to help the future of longevity.
What excites you most about VitaDAO’s future?
Turning a lot of early-stage aging research projects into startups that can advance longevity therapeutics to market.
