Employment
  • The Cryptosphere
    Founding Editor, 2014 - present
    Founding Editor of The Cryptosphere. The Cryptosphere aims to put into plain English the crazy, crazy, mixed-up world of hackers, hacktivism, cyberwar, cryptocurrency, leakers, spies, viruses, trojans, worms, and John McAfee, who is several of these things all by himself.

  • 2600 The Hacker Quarterly
    Facebook Admin, 2013 - present

    I cover what Anonymous has up its sleeve as well as what some on the international hacker scene are up to. My specialty is covering the stories that happen where hacking meets revolution. OpGabon, OpSafeWinter, OpAntiBully, and OpTrapwire are some of the stories I've covered.
