My name is Dan, and I'm a security researcher and developer. I currently work for a security company outside of Baltimore. Previously, I was one of the core developers of Commotion, a wireless mesh networking platform. I study information security, with a focus on penetration testing and malware techniques.
I've lived in the Baltimore area all my life, and I currently help out with campaigns with FORCE Upsetting Rape Culture and was a collective member of the Baltimore Indypendent Reader for its last 3 years. I'm interested in information security, malware, politics, music, and the intersections of technology and social change. I also maintain strong security practices and occasionally do security consulting and audits for organizations or individuals.
Once in a while I'll even record something on my 8-string guitar.
