About Me

If you do not care to learn anything about me and just want to know how to contact me, click here to be taken directly to the how to contact me.

I am a computer, IT, security, all around geek. I have been in IT for almost 20 years and the majority of that time in IT Security (as well as about 4 years in Networking). I am married, in my late 30's, and have 3 children, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I decided to throw this little site together to share some stuff I have accumulated over the years. My goal was not to have more beginner tutorials because the net is saturated with those already for these topics. I wanted material geared more towards the intermediate level folks. Also writing about this stuff forces me to research and learn more about it.

My hobbies outside of geekery include woodworking, DIY, martial arts (I am a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and brown belt in Kajukenbo), and triathlons (for those who also do tris I have done 1 sprint, 2 Olympics, and one half). Two of my long term goals are qualifying for both the Ironman Championship in Kona, Hawaii and the Boston Marathon.

If you would like to contact me, click here to reveal my email address. It is a simple test to ensure you are not a SPAM spewing bot.

Another way to retrieve my email address is to import my GnuPG key. You can find it on any of the keyservers via my public key id: 0x16342D5E or downloading it from here. Don't worry about encrypting the email you send to me (unless you are a secret 3 letter government agency and need help saving the world with my nap taking skills). I wrote a GnuPG document. Check out if you are new to gpg.

Please contact me if you are having trouble running one of my scripts, any technical mistakes found, and of course everyone's favorite: spelling and grammar mistakes (also don't forget to send me any good cat videos). I apologize but I will be unable to answer any general technical questions regarding the subjects on this site (ie. how do I do x in Python). In the links section I have added the sites I go for help on these topics, so of course I would recommend you visit them as well, otherwise I will just send you to the All Knowing One.
