About

I’m the Director of Threat Solutions at Shape Security, a web and mobile security startup that protects many of the world’s largest websites from malicious automation. Bloomberg has listed Shape Security as one of the top fifty startups. I’m proud to lead a team of outstanding web and mobile security engineers and to work with some of the brightest engineers in Silicon Valley.

I see this blog as a learning tool. It gives me a chance to collect my thoughts on topics of interest and to share with others. I don’t consider myself an expert in most of the topics I explore. Please don’t take anything here as the last word in anything. If you see a mistake or think I’m on the wrong track, please let me know. I appreciate comments.

Outside of work, I enjoy bicycling with my family along the San Francisco Bay Bike Path, playing in the AYSO adult soccer league, and cheering for FC Barcelona.
