3 -I am currently extremely proud to be the Debian Project Leader (DPL). Throughout this term as I have shown a dedication to many of the values that Debian and the OSI have in common. For example, I have dramatically increased Debian's **commitment and involvement in outreach initiatives** (both in real terms and in increased awarenes) and solidified many **cross-distribution and inter-project communications**. I also have demonstrated I am a "steady hand" with respect on the project's stance on a** genuine commitment to users' freedoms** as well as remaining level-headed, rational and objective whilst **mediating inter-personal conflict **and generally just herding the various breed of cat that exist in the free/open source communities and beyond.

I also believe in **open, clear and frank communications** and thus every month of my term I have published an update of how I have been representing the Project ([[example>>url:https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2018/02/msg00006.html]]).

5 5  As a bit more background about me, after working in the London tech scene I become a freelancer and am relishing the challenges and opportunities this has offered me, especially in how I can leverage this to contribute more to free software and perhaps by bringing some hard-won lessons from the folks in the startup world. More recently, I've been highly active in the [[Reproducible Builds>>url:https://reproducible-builds.org/||style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"]] project where I was [[awarded a grant from the Linux Foundation>>url:https://chris-lamb.co.uk/posts/awarded-core-infrastructure-initiative-grant-reproducible-builds||style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"]]. As a freelancer, whilst I don't have express an anti-corporate sentiment, I do not hold any explicit ties to any particular company, a useful asset in this world where suspicion of bias or ulterior motives is sadly prevalent.
