I love computer security, leading teams of all sizes, and solving hard problems. Currently, I'm leading the Product & Application Security organization at Netflix where we protect Netflix’s customers and cloud deployments through a wide range of activities including creating and operating security critical cloud services, internal security consulting, running Netflix’s bug bounty program, and driving Netflix’s investments in customer trust. I'm hiring, so if you have a passion for security, software engineering, or fraud and abuse prevention please let me know!

I've worked in computer security for my entire career. Over the years I have worked on both offensive and defensive security projects for government, academia, and industry. As a result, I can often bring unique perspectives to modern security issues. I enjoy giving talks about computer security, and have previously published peer-reviewed security research and contributed to various open source software projects.

When I step away from the computer I enjoy bicycling, photography, anything outdoors, and spending time with my family.
