I build, manage, and compromise computer systems. I solve crime and find evil at Mandiant, an information security firm based in Washington, D.C. specializing in incident response. I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology where I studied Information Security & Forensics and minored in American Politics.
Before my time at Mandiant I worked for Cisco Systems, Hershey Entertainment & Resorts, BOCES and Aida Networks. These experiences have given me familiarity with a wide variety of platforms and environments, including many firewalls, IPS/IDS systems, all major Cisco products, Citrix and VMWare solutions, several major operating systems [Windows/BSD/OSX/Linux], and Mandiant MIR.
Outside of work I like to study law and politics, particularly rights theory, origin of power, and intellectual property. I am bad at chess, worse at Go, and can be found playing league nights at Lucy's Billiards in Arlington.
