Contributor Intro: David Utro

Hi folks,

I’m David Utro, a crypto-loving communications and operations professional with several years of experience in academia, e-commerce, and crypto. I’ve been investing and contributing to DeFi since 2017. Most recently, I led a team at MakerDAO that focused on Organizational Knowledge Management and Stakeholder Coordination. I currently lead Grants and Community at Ajna.Finance, and reserve a few hours a week to spend on other projects I find interesting :grin: (That’s where Centrifuge comes in)

I am a skeptic at heart who is deeply fascinated by many things. I graduated from Bernard Baruch College in 2016 with a BA in Corporate Communications, though my education didn’t stop with that; I am and always will be a student. I’ve continued to self-study and explore topics of interest post-graduation. I have a decent handle on computer science, DAO governance, design, ethics, and finance. I am still learning new things every day. My colleagues tend to say I’m a positive person, a great communicator, conceptually technical, easy-going, and a reference for writing and operational best practices.

I’ve been following Centrifuge for a long time. I first met Lea Schmitt and @lucasvo in December 2019 during a MakerDAO community call where we explored Centrifuge as one of the first RWA-focused projects in the space. It’s been interesting to watch the evolution of both Centrifuge and Maker. Now that I’m taking a break from MakerDAO, I’m excited to contribute to Centrifuge where I can.


Thank you @Kate_Bee, @cassidy, @lucasvo, @ImdioR, and @Rhano for welcoming and guiding me into the contributor community.
