Why am I running for a seat on the board of CIRA?

I am passionate about the Internet, especially in Canada. I live and breathe the Internet – just ask my family 😉

I registered my first domain name in 1995 and have been dedicated to the Internet in Canada full time (or longer, depends on whom you ask) since 2001, when I started working at Tucows/OpenSRS, a wholesale domain registrar. Since 2007 I run my own business, DomainCocoon, that consults registries, registrars, domain investors and aftermarket companies in this space.

Thank you for the chance to bring my passion for this Industry along to work with the rest of the CIRA board and employees and to help keep the internet growing, free (in the sense of freedom of expression, free from control within the limits of existing laws) and available to as many people as possible.
