Thank you all for your kind words and support, specially Jeff for
nominating me.

Since 2007 I've been working on several fronts at the Foundation,
mostly on outreach, some systems admin and of course at Local Chapter
level at OSGeo-es. Thus, my areas of interest and where I think I can
be more helpful are also outreach, community strengthening and
maintaining the systems working.

I'm specially interested on giving to Charter Members more relevancy,
supporting local chapters as our feet on the ground where advocacy is
more needed, and finally to improve and boost our relationships with
other geospatial communities that share our vision.

I'm thrilled to see such amazing candidates and current board members,
and regardless I'm elected or not, I'll keep helping and doing my best
for this community I really love.
