With over 10 years of experience solving security strategy, architecture and engineering problems, I bring the fight to technical adversaries with the breadth and depth of skills needed for high-stakes, complex engagements.

With a laser focus on security strategy project leadership, cyber wargaming, policy and technical security controls, building and leading elite teams in assessment and implementation of tailored security solutions, I have earned a reputation in the InfoSec community as a critical thinker, a skilled technologist, and an effective leader.

I’ve designed and executed security solutions across a range of industries. I’ve recently led the optimization of security strategies and system architectures for several high-scale D2C products, e-commerce platforms, two top-tier telcos, a $50Bn+ FinTech (Basel III), and numerous $1Bn+ multinational and start-up tech firms. In March 2020, I was invited to Wargame an Int'l (Cyber) Crisis at The Hoover Institution, Stanford.
