About

I’m a full-stack web developer with a strong interest in web security. I proudly work as a solution engineer at Shape Security, a really awesome web security start-up that protects some of the world’s largest web sites from bot attacks. I have the pleasure of working directly with enterprise customers to optimize the protection that our service offers.

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 Barcelona FC.
