Australian technologist and developer with a background in information security currently working as a freelance security, privacy and startup consultant.
Previously at Techcrunch, CrunchBase, founder at Omnidrive and a number of other startups since 2000.
Worked in the security field since the 90s publishing dozens of advisories around web application security, IIS, Windows NT, Linux etc. (under various aliases and in my own name). Today I am an advocate for user privacy, security, civil and online rights.
In my working role I advise startups, enterprises and venture funds on issues around security, privacy, new technology, bitcoin, etc. I carry out secure design, penetration tests, identify privacy issues, audits and conduct seminars about security and privacy. I have experience across a number of sectors including startups, enterprise tech, pharmaceuticals, investment banking, real estate and high-risk areas such as law firms, NGO employees, journalists, etc. I do this all over the world (lived in Australia, the UK, United States, Bosnia, Serbia and South Africa), and work remotely.
