About me

I have been working in information security since November 1984 for the United States Army, Boeing, and as a private practice consultant-attorney. I have worked as a digital forensic examiner (handled about 700 cases).  I have also consulted and developed policy relating to corporate implementation of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations and Export Administration Regulations. 

My hobbies include wilderness backpacking, camping, canoeing (I have been active as an adult leader with Boy Scouts of America).
