This is my personal little slice of the internet. It's primarily where I share things that may be useful
. It also serves as background
, as needed.
I am primarily a hacker, architect and entrepreneur. In the course of my career I’ve worked in defense
and national security
, cloud computing
. I've also served as founder, co-founder, or CTO in web
start-ups. I’ve built teams, had to shutter or downsize companies, and worn a variety of hats trying to bring an idea to market.
I’ve worked on software engineering at the embedded firmware layer, up to large-scale, globally-distributed platforms. I’ve also developed physical products
for some of my projects
, ranging from textiles
, to electronics
and hardware. I’ve performed penetration testing and internal red-teaming, up to real-world information collections in hostile environments. My focus, however, has generally been on building secure systems rather than exploitation.
In my personal life, I’ve spent quite a lot of time overseas
, supporting humanitarian
efforts in disasters
. I've organized
or contributed to
events or projects
. My proudest, or happiest, achievements have been when I’ve helped save lives, helped people succeed, or brought a new product to life. I love building and improving things.
