About me

Occupation Software Engineer
Location Middle America
Introduction I'm a software and security engineer. I recently finished 8 years teaching computer security at UIUC. Most recently I've been spending my time on the design and construction of SafelyFiled, a cloud based document organization tool. I've been working in the security space for 16 years plus a brief stint working on a B1 OS project between undergrad and grad school. I worked on parallel systems in grad school and joined a start up upon graduation that created a firewall on a Windows NT base (among other cool technologies). The start up got bought by Cisco, and I spent a number of years working on policy-based security management there. I have three lovely children, three chickens, two guinea pigs, a dog, and a husband to fill the rest of my time.
Interests Linux, netfilter, networking, security, chickens, music, driving children around
