I am a Seattle born and raised multimedia designer, artist, information security professional, and lawyer. Currently, my work focuses on cybersecurity, privacy and human rights.
My parents took me out of school when I was 13. I have a GED (passed at 16 years old), an A.A. (Seattle Central Community College), a B.A. (University of Washington – graduating magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa), a J.D. (Seattle University School of Law), an MSc (University of Oxford), and an LL.M (UC Berkeley School of Law). I am a member of the New Hampshire Bar, Vermont Bar, and the Washington DC Bar.
Since I was 13, I have been a hobbyist hacker. Now, I am a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), and a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US).
I am an accomplished dj who has spun at over 250 events. Visit my music site to listen to over 20 mixes.
I am also a traditionally trained martial artist with a black belt in Aikido and eight years of training with two grandmasters (Fook Yeung and Sid Woodcock).
