Husband. Father. Nerd. Mormon.
I'm a guy that just can't make up his mind. I just enjoy doing a lot of different things.
But mostly, I'm a UI/UX guy that loves making things simpler... for developers and users!
I enjoy learning and understanding security... whether breaking in or trying to help others get it.
I get easily excited building real-time applications using WebSockets and other push technologies.
I'm also not afraid of getting my hands dirty digging through other peoples' source code.
I like to contribute back, so love working on teams and helping share what I've learned.
But, don't take my word for it. Let my work speak for itself...
I'm the proud owner and CEO of Nerdwin15, LLC. Why that name?
My wife often calls me Nerdwin and we were hoping that 2015 is the year we'd become homeowners.
So, combined the two, and bam! Nerdwin15!
I believe strongly in giving back. Whether it's my own knowledge or bug fixes, there's always something to give. And, it doesn't take much time to do it.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
#2 Most Popular Plugin for Atlassian Stash (as of November 2015)
The plugin allows for continuous deployment/integration by notifying Jenkins when code has been pushed. Options exist to configure when and how the hook should be used.
I love tinkering with stuff. In most cases, it's trying to figure out if I can break it.
But, in the process, I occasionally get lucky and find a vulnerability.
I do my best to provide detailed docs on what I find and responsibly disclose it.
I've spent some time tinkering with PGP and potentially using it to better secure client-side code running in the browser.
I was inducted into the Google Security Hall of Fame after discovering a vulernability in Google Voice. The vulnerability allowed a user to add any arbitrary phone number as a forwarding number, completely circumventing the phone call to verify physical access to the phone.
