I am an information security professional in the Seattle Metropolitan Area. I have a UCLA Bachelor of Arts degree in underwater basket weaving, better known as anthropology. Current industry designations include CISSP, CCSP, SSCP, CISM, CISA, and CRISC.

Lifelong fascinations include classical cryptography and interactive fiction. My wife Elizabeth and I enjoy long hikes, spicy food, and coddling our rambunctious housecats.
