Software/Network Engineer for the Secure Computing Group (aka SecLab) at UCSB. Part-time lecturer at the Department of Computer Science at Westmont College and occasional contractor. Master of Science in Software Engineering from California State University, Fullerton.

While working at UCSB, I have had the chance to work on significant projects with remarkable individuals.


I am passionate about learning and teaching. I have occasionally taught an upper-division course on Programming Languages.
