1. What made you want to join M3AAWG?

What M3AAWG does intentionally — best practices and far-sighted initiatives like the AI Committee — and the community + relationship approach to doing that work were the main attraction. Making things work is hard work; I appreciate the people who tackle it.

2. Is there a particular area in anti-abuse where M3AAWG has helped you to grow professionally?

Probably too early to make the call on that, but the early insights on changes in email authentication helped us steer some clients around potentially big issues.

3. What has been your favorite thing about M3AAWG General Meetings? 

I've only attended one (Brooklyn '23) — listening to people debate "must" and "shall" was my favorite thing. (Seriously!)

4. What's your favorite food or your signature drink/dish (the one you like to prepare for family and friends)?

Got lucky, married a chef. Whatever she makes :-)

Fun Fact:

I've been studying voice (baritone) pretty seriously for over a decade, and have never done karaoke.
