I build, manage, and compromise computer systems for an information security firm in Washington, D.C. I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology where I studied Information Security & Forensics and minored in American Politics. Previous employment has given me familiarity with a variety of platforms, including many firewalls, IPS/IDS systems, forensic suites, all major Cisco products, numerous hypervisors, and most major operating systems [Windows/BSD/OSX/Linux].
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 a bit better at pool.
