I do application and network programming, system administration, a bit of hardware hacking, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Check out my résumé.

1software: "My passion is to write good code. In my ideal world, all source is written for clarity, extensibility, and ease of maintenance."

2security: "I take the security of my tools very seriously. When implementing a new idea, threat modeling and robustness under failure conditions are integral to the design process."

3networks: "I build networks for fun and enjoy designing secure protocols. I have experience developing software which utilizes the Tor, i2p, and cjdns overlay networks, as well as conventional TCP/IP networks."

I am party to a wager regarding the validity of Cicada 3301's PGP-signed messages. As fans of the puzzle are already aware, the 3301 group uses a PGP key, fingerprint 6D85 4CD7 9333 22A6 01C3 286D 181F 01E5 7A35 090F, to uniquely authenticate their puzzle clues, private communications, and public statements. Due to a recent surge in Cicada-themed puzzles claimed to be authentic, and the corresponding conspiracy theory bullshit on youtube, a small group of 3301 librarians have gotten together to put a price tag on our level of confidence that it's impossible to impersonate 3301's PGP signatures. Taken in conjunction with recent signed disavowals of unsigned messages, this wager serves as a bounty to be claimed by anyone who can disprove the assertion that unverified Cicada puzzles are impostors.

Shouts to crashdemons for drawing this thing up!

These days, I'm a full-time Computer Science undergrad at Virginia Tech. This summer, I'm an intern at ViaSat, where I spend my time developing and deploying network security defense systems. I enjoy problem solving, application development, communications security, applied cryptography, photography, 2D graphics, 3D modeling, and industrial robotics.
