About me

Welcome!

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 & Game efforts to bring the Bald Eagle back to Massachusetts.

I worked for a few multi-national companies over my career. They were happy to fly me around the world and have me 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 an advisor to the Open Security Foundation, which exists to empower all types of organizations by providing knowledge and resources so that they may properly detect, protect, and mitigate information security risks. 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’m a strong believer of individual rights, privacy, anonymity, and solving real-world problems; sometimes even with technology. If you wish to contact me, please use my pgp key. Thanks!
