Here’s a bunch of context about me, which is always tough to write and define oneself with, but may be helpful to you.
My work for others is mainly “computer hacking” and application security. I’ve helped successfully launch Bullish and HBO Max, via senior posts in both. Before that, I spent some years as a traveling consultant and penetration tester helping Fortune 500s and government entities.
*Separate blog warandcode.com captures my security thoughts.*
Besides fortifying digital products, I’ve also built a lot of software under Kapotel. Content sites, some experiments in SaaS, e-commerce, etc.
None of the views expressed here necessarily reflect those of my business(es), employer(s), or clients. 😛
I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York but now reside in South Florida. New York City is where much else of my life has taken place.
Away from the computer, my hobbies include sport shooting, flying small planes, pretty varied reading, and lifting weights.
Common themes on this blog are hacking and strategizing. These are personal instincts I’ve managed to channel career-wise instead of prison-wise. 🙌
You might also read about philosophy, contingency planning, or imposing one’s will on the universe. You should do all of that.
This website was started in 2014. At that time I was 19, still in college, developing my sense of self and a Bitcoin casino. The oldest articles are still here.
Generally over time I’ve improved in all life domains (health, wealth, romance, whatever). My travel schedule has oscillated between extremes, as have my social and extended family lives. That’ll save you some reading from the retrospectives.
Note that my current blog does not have comments on it. This is by design. 🌝
I am not active on social media and sometimes call it “Mark Zuckerberg’s brainwash” or similar. Great platforms for business, but also stealing attention en masse.
For the sake of “claiming” public accounts, though, here they are —
I am unlikely to respond to messages via any of those sites.
