Greeting capsuleers of New Eden,

I am running for the first time in the election for CSM XII.

Let me tell you a bit about myself and a bit of my history in New Eden.

I am 20 years old and I am an Air Traffic Controller in the U.S Army, I have lived in Phoenix Arizona for about 17 years. I started playing EVE a few months before I enlisted, where I had joined a small C3 Pulsar Wormhole corp and learned the basics about wormhole life. After Basic Training I really got into EVE while I was in school for my MOS (Military Occupational Specialty). During my time at school I had accumulated 4 accounts, and was part of 2 alliances (Serenity Initiatve and TEST Alliance) and I got into trading toons for ISK. Eventually I made enough ISK to get to where I am today, with 6 accounts and about 10 toons each with a different specialty. After school I had about 4 months before I deployed overseas. Which during all of our pre-deployment training; the I-10 Shooter was around and I had to drive that same route 2 times a day to get where I needed to be, luckily I never got shot :)
From that point I deployed and I pretty much sat around doing nothing 95% of the time, and I joined DARKNESS and helped in WWB, a few weeks into WWB my corp left DARKNESS and went to I N F A M O U S, and I attempted to create my own WH corp and got evicted before our Astrahus could finish it's "after anchoring repair cycle" and so I was taken in to MCAV, which is where I have been since then.

First and foremost; I want to advocate my focus for CSM.

  • I want to help make WH space great again! We all know that WH space needs a healthy population of capsuleers moving in, and I want to help make that happen.
  • Help make WH space not boring (This includes the possibility of new sites, better escalations, and a new player influx)
  • *THIS IS AN IDEA I NEED FEEDBACK ON* If CCP were to bring up SOV-type structues in W-Space I want to know what you guys think.
  • Mining in W-Space is somewhat lacking... I want to help make it better for potential WH mining corps. ( I have 4 Hulks and an Orca and can mine better in nullsec)
  • We all know C6's are pretty much dead, I am going to try my hardest to make C6 space attractive.


  • More bulletins will be added as my campaign progresses

    Help me Help you!
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions and I will be more than happy to answer them!

    A few questions:
    "I want to help make WH space great again! We all know that WH space needs a healthy population of capsuleers moving in, and I want to help make that happen.
    Help make WH space not boring (This includes the possibility of new sites, better escalations, and a new player influx)"

    These points are pretty vague and don't really entail knowledge of the issues with W-Space. Can you add some more specifics on how you would intend to interface with CCP to do stuff like this?

    "Mining in W-Space is somewhat lacking... I want to help make it better for potential WH mining corps. ( I have 4 Hulks and an Orca and can mine better in nullsec)
    We all know C6's are pretty much dead, I am going to try my hardest to make C6 space attractive."

    Same for these, actually. I would recommend expanding on your ideas otherwise you'll get these 2 questions all the time, and it saves you the trouble.


    As someone who lives in C6 space (albeit on alts), I do think that making C6 space "great again" to a W-Space player perspective is not as easy as it seems. In Tweetfleet, the number one thing people have discusses is adding dual statics to C6s. It would likely cause a mass exodus of C5 corps though. Why live in C5 with a single static, and trashed site respawn rates if everyone is in C6? I'd like your input.


    Also, you haven't addressed the issue with Z142 nullsec holes in C5 space being closed but still being visually "open". Do you plan on interfacing with CCP to try and get this bug fixed?
