About Me



I am an experienced security consultant, software engineer & solution architect with a strong interest in advocating privacy for the general public. I am a member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, and I hold life membership with the Open Web Application Security Project and Electronic Frontiers Australia. I actively mentor and invest in technology start ups but I am often found travelling.


I am currently focused on building technology companies in Asia, Australia and North America, specifically in the media & entertainment sectors. I am serving in roles as a CTO, CISO, & Board Member.

Architecture

Solution design and technical decision making across the enterprise. Alignment of technology to business, cost reduction, business transitions, technology selection, platform definition & a whole lot of experience in complex environments.

Security

OWASP, CIS, SANS, ISM and PCI DSS are not just buzzwords for me. I have helped organisations achieve compliance, I am Stanford University trained in cryptography and I am a Member of the Technical Committee on Security and Privacy for the IEEE.
