I work at a federal government data center as a Cyber Security Analyst, employed by ERT Corp, where I focus on application security. I practice ethical hacking, and am even certified in it, among other things. From penetration testing to static code analysis, I get to do some fun things day in and day out.
I care deeply about online privacy and security, and I often write about those things on my blog.
I am a WordPress enthusiast, and have been using it since it was called B2 (this blog, in particular, started on B2!). I have created literally hundreds of WordPress websites, dozens of custom themes, and several plugins.
Here’s a video of me from WordCamp Asheville in 2016, talking about WordPress security:
I released my first solo album a few years ago. It’s an odd blend of trip-hop, electronica, and other strange things.
You should check out my music archive site, where there is a bunch of info about the Louisville music scene I was involved in from the 80’s and 90’s, as well as some more current things.
