My academic background is diverse, with degrees in Philosophy (B.A., Delaware), Liberal Studies (M.A., Georgetown) and Social Informatics (Ph.D., Drexel). My professional background is in I.T. and information security, working in engineering, consulting, and project management capacities for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Department of Education, the Federal Aviation Administration, and other government and commercial organizations.
Before my academic career I passed the time as a web designer, barista, waiter, and musician. In my free time I play with computers and dogs, and maybe the most serious hack golfer you know.
