Re: [ #16376] Your GNOME Foundation Membership: we need some more information

Dear Gnome Team,

I'm an UX/ Interface designer and design teacher at a local university in town. (Novorossysk, Russia)
I've shared and worked using Gnome technologies with GBA Ships e.V in Mosbach, Germany (non-profit) and with 
OM International ICT (Carlisle, UK- also non-profit) and I had a OSS group in Krasnodar, Russia and Kunming, 
China. While in China I was a strong advocate for OSS and training my fellow co workers into the ways of 
Linux 😉 (Freshterminal Inc, HQed in Kunming, China and working in the US - California)

A link to an article and with a reference to my former employer:

From algorithm to market -<>
FreshPlaza is the number one portal for the fresh produce industry, offering the latest news, job 
advertisements, pricewatching, and photo reports

After 4 years in China I'm back as an expat in Russia working and sharing my knowledge and experience with my 
students and also promoting open source, from Linux and BSD but more specifically related to Gnome and KDE as 
I use GTK+ for most of my work and some QT here and there as well.
Unfortunately I have lost touch with my Gnome friends back home as I've been overseas for more than 10 years 
I'd like to join the community so I can not only speak about it but also be a proper representative to 
recruit and create an opportunity for young developers/designers to get hands on experience in programming 
and developing interfaces using Gnome technologies. The community is quite small in Russia as a whole and 
being a foreigner allows me to invite and get to know more people for the project.

I'm preparing and hoping to organize talks and conferences here to raise awareness in this city and region.

As you can see, long story short, I'm a huge evangelist and very passionate about the cause. That's one of 
the main reasons why I hope to be part of the foundation and to keep spreading the word and to send new 
people your way! :)

If there's any additional information you require, do let me know.
