I am an information security professional in the Pacific Northwest. Current industry designations include CISSP, CCSP, SSCP, CISM, CISA, and CRISC.
At the tender age of six, I performed an unauthorized penetration test on the computer in my elementary school library. As an adult, I married an academic librarian and entered the information security field, where numerous industry certifications now bind me to professional codes of ethics. The irony is not lost on me.
I have a UCLA Bachelor of Arts degree in underwater basket weaving, better known as anthropology. Lifelong fascinations include classical cryptography and interactive fiction. My wife Elizabeth and I enjoy long hikes, spicy food, and coddling our rambunctious housecats.
