I am a seasoned cyber security expert, startup founder, and accomplished product leader. With extensive experience spanning the US Government and private sector, I have honed my expertise in building innovative solutions that solve complex security challenges.

I'm currently the head of product at a stealth startup in the security and privacy space.

I founded and led a consumer-focused cyber security startup in Area 120 that was acquired by Google One. There, I served as the Product Lead of a 50+ cross-functional team developing and implementing advanced privacy and security features for users.

Prior to this, I served as a Special Agent in the United States Secret Service for over 8 years, where I was widely recognized for outstanding work in leading the case against digital currency Liberty Reserve and the JPMC intrusion. I was honored with several prestigious awards, including the Samuel J Heyman Call to Service Award (the "Oscars" for the federal government), the DHS Secretary's Gold Medal (the highest DHS award given), and USSS Special Agent of the Year.

I am a Veteran, having served as an Infantry Officer in the U.S. Army and hold a BS in Mathematics and Computer Science from the US Military Academy at West Point and an MBA from Cornell University.

I actively advise multiple early-stage cyber security startups and run an online safety community aimed at improving people's personal cyber security.
