VP Engineering ~ Built and Led Startup Engineering Team @ Network Chemistry

Security has long been my passion, whether it has been helping to build the PKI for a multinational corporation, designing the authentication system for a gaming network, building the world's first commercial deep-deception honeypot, pushing the envelope of network IPS, or building wireless intrusion prevention solutions.

Security has long been my passion, whether it has been helping to build the PKI for a multinational corporation, designing the authentication system for a gaming network, building the world's first commercial deep-deception honeypot, pushing the envelope of network IPS, or building wireless intrusion prevention solutions. I believe it is a field ripe with interesting technology and social problems. How can you be secure unless the administrator can easily see it? How can you deploy a new security system that users refuse to use? I have spoken publicly many times on the need for usable security and I will continue to pursue this at every opportunity.
In my 17 years of experience I have concluded that great technology can only come to fruition if you can combine a great team, a good idea, and solid processes. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the best people in the industry and I know first hand the difference a single, driven person can have on even the biggest project. I've also seen fantastic teams with great ideas fail because of a lack of organization and planning. When it all comes together, though, it is truly something to behold.

From January 2011 to May 2012 (1 year 5 months) Architect @ Aruba Networks acquired the wireless security assets of Network Chemistry in July 2007. I successfully transitioned the products, systems, and engineering team and took on the role of security architect. Within two months we were able to relauch the RFprotect line of products as fully Aruba-branded and within three months we had added support for using Aruba APs as wireless sensors.
After fully integrating RFprotect into ArubaOS I transition to a role spearheading Aruba's efforts to enter the mobile enterprise market. Though I left before completion this effort resulted in the successful launch of the MDAC and VIA line of products for mobile VPN and detection and management of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) enterprises.
