Important things about me:

-1.) I am a Christian

That means lots of things to lots of people, but to me it’s all about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Who, died for me when I was but an enemy.  So that I might be redeemed to Him, by sacrificing Himself to the point of death on a cross.  Glory to Him forever.

3.14.) I am a Husband & Father

Every day I work hard to lead my family.  I have a beautiful wife, and two amazing sons.  I am humbled continually by their love, patience, and support.

5.) I am a Budoka

I have studied martial arts for the last 8 years of my life, the last 6.5 with Jiyushinkai Aikibudo under Chuck Clark and Shinto Muso Ryu Jo with Phil Relnick.  I am honored to be able to train with such amazing individuals.

4.) I am a l33t H/\X0ry sort

I love finding new ways to do things, or even old ways for that matter.  I like tearing things apart and breaking them down.  I am lucky enough to do this thing I love for a living with Trustwave SpiderLabs.  I break  applications professionally.  In my free time I am studying ASM and reverse engineering software.  Why? I dunno, it makes me happy in uncomfortable ways.  First thing I ever did with a computer was break it– haven’t stopped since.

a.) I was a software developer

Making software is almost as much fun as breaking it.  I am a super code monkey with .NET and can tell you things about the framework that by all rights I should not know.  I have a deep and intimate (apomictic) relationship with the CLR.  I have focused on the web for most of my career, but I like to play with whatever I can get.  I can read and write c++, vb, javascript, php, python, ruby and Korean.

8.) I hate lists

I value relationships over bullet points.

4444.) I like user groups

I like to help run, partake and present at user groups.  I help run the local OWASP Phoenix chapter, as well as running the windows azure group.  I have presented a bunch at desert code camp, because I like to influence and subject future generations of programmers to my wild and crazy ideas.  Like, pragmatism, for instance.

23.) I am badass mother who don’t take nothing from no-buddy.


3^2.) I am a Microsoft MVP in Windows Azure.

Microsoft has decided to give me the honor of MVP.  I hope to do them and the title proud.
