A senior security systems engineer with 25+ years’ experience currently employed at a fortune sixty company in the Washington DC area. Day job, responsible for world-wide evaluation, certification, penetration and integrity testing of a variety of current and emerging technologies, networks, architectures, and devices. Night hobbies - monitors major trade shows like CES in Las Vegas for the train-wreck factor as new technology seems to be developed and deployed with some if not most of the existing vulnerabilities, bugs, and issues of today. Some issues dating back more than twenty years ago that should have been resolved. When not stifled by my company’s legal team I have been permitted to speak on certain subjects to the security community on issues that I see in technology. I'm an active member of the Northern Virginia Hackers association (NoVaH) a collective of security professionals, hackers, authors, makers, and tool developers.
