ABOUT

I started my career in technology in the early nineties working at small regional internet companies. Even then, I was fascinated by internet threats. Intrigued by complex technology stacks, I naturally took to systems administration, internetworking design, and security architectures. I have worked for large organizations like AT&T and have been instrumental in burgeoning startups, some acquired and some successfully raised IPO. I have been the lead founder at GroupSense since 2014. Beyond my technical aptitude, my ability to connect with people has positioned me to make a difference in each engagement.

 

I mountain bike, hike, camp, overland, and ride motorcycles for fun. My current side project is GoodSense, a non-profit focused on assisting small businesses and individuals with cybersecurity and cryptocurrency safety.

Zen pretty much comes down to three things --
everything changes; everything is connected; pay attention.
