Welcome to my personal website, which I created to provide a place for my work and my thoughts.   I’m a marketing communications professional in Seattle specializing in security, privacy and online safety policy at Microsoft.  (Standard disclaimer – all opinions expressed on this site are my own, and not those of Microsoft.)

I’m passionate about the issues that play out in the intersection of technology, society, and policy.  I’m especially interested in information security, privacy, and online safety, and I really enjoy researching and writing about these topics.

On this site you will various things I’ve written, including published articles, white papers, testimony, and research, as well as articles where I’ve been cited, and presentations I’m giving.
