I started my career with ePresence Inc. building Web applications for clients such as AT&T, Valley National Bank, and Cingular Wireless. Banyan acquired ePresence and rebranded as an Identity & Access Management (IAM) services firm which was eventually acquired by Unisys. I managed IAM implementation projects for Nextel, ADP, Tyco International, and Genworth Financial, among others. After Unisys, I held pre-sales, consulting, marketing, and product management roles in IAM and Information Security for companies such as MaXware (now SAP), RSA, NetVision, and STEALTHbits Technologies. In 2011, SYS-CON Media honored me as one of the Most Powerful Voices in Information Security. I now have an internally facing role at Oracle providing research and analysis on Database Security and Identity & Access Management.
Maybe it was growing up in the shadow of New York City, but as an adult I've always been drawn to nature. I now live on the outskirts of a state forest in the Cumberland Valley (Pennsylvania) with my wife of over 15 years and our two daughters. I'm a fan of music (especially the kind that highlights individual instruments and the human talent behind them) and I dabble in playing guitar and harmonica. Other interests include photography, writing, and of course, technology.
