This domain first existed in 1995. The Internet Archive Wayback Machine can provide you with select iterations of the site. I’m a trained Biologist with specialization in Ethology and Biochemistry. I’ve also been surrounded by computers of various kinds since I was a kid. My mad computer scientist lab doubled as a bedroom throughout my teenage years; containing such variety as Vax & Micro/Minis, Amstrad, AIX PowerPCs, SGI IRIX MIPS, Sun SPARCs, and for a while, an original BeBox. Since then I’ve studied the communication and brooding behavior of the Common Loon (Gavia immer), the underwater communications of the African Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), and assisted Mass Fish & Wildlife efforts to bring the Bald Eagle back to Massachusetts.
I worked for a few multi-national companies over my career. I flew around the world to work in such places as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines. After a while I moved on to found and sell a few companies, such as Open Systems Engineering & Management, Boston Biofuels, and a niche auto racing business, ZombieWerks.
Currently, I run The Tor Project as the Executive Director and a member of the Board. I’m on the Board of the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium, which brings together anonymity and privacy experts from around the world to discuss recent advances and new perspectives in privacy for the Internet and other communication networks. I work on IPVTech to help eliminate Domestic Violence, Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), and Intimate Partner Abuse (IPA) through the use of information technology, resources, biotechnology, and experience.
I’m a strong believer of individual rights, privacy, anonymity, and solving real-world problems; sometimes even with technology. I’ve been interviewed by the global press about these topics. Sometimes, I even write code.
