It is now safe to turn off your computer. For most of us, this simple message in the late 90’s was a reminder that the important system processes had ceased and the circuits carrying all of those ‘1’s and ‘0’s were ready to be powered off. For me, it was my first foothold into the information security arena. Starting at defacing that iconic .JPEG and advancing into running information security teams across finance, healthcare, and manufacturing organizations, I’ve tried to remove a little bit of entropy in the world through a passion of simple solutions to complex problems.
A problem well defined is a problem half solved. In a world where threat landscapes, frameworks, and shareholder value are constantly being challenged, being able to fall back to the fundamentals of logic and computing have become a rare commodity. I like to work with those who have a similar appetite for challenging the norms and thinking creatively. Typically, these symptoms present themselves as charts, graphs, and bad jokes in presentations into the board rooms and conference calls of organizations seeking improvement.
My 2-year-old daughter is my biggest fan, I enjoy long walks with heavy back packs, and that inner voice inside my head sounds a lot like David Goggins.
