Fascinated by transactional nature of counter knowledge and public discourse which simulate (but don't engender) counter-public spheres

I work at a large financial institution.  For fun, I break software and infrastructures, keep busy with research, mentor, and build massive planetary distributed self-healing clouds for fun.  I cherish enterprise risk management, privacy, security leadership, application security, information security, penetration testing, privacy, anonymity, operational security, agile system administration, devops, and outdoor activities.

I am inspired by those who blend academic and blackhat hacks. I'm disgusted by those who call a 20 year old RFC over HTTP innovative. 

I am a proud uncle of an amazing niece and nephew.
