I started my cyber security life by being kicked out of high school computing class for privilege escalation
on the school linux system.
Since then I've spent time in the aero industry writing software to ensure airplane engines didn't crash, the telecom industry ensuring that calls were connected and the automotive industry improving velocity and efficiency. With quality, safety and security as a focus for over 25 years in software development, I've come full circle as a dedicated DevSecOps champion, securing cloud native applications.
Prior to joining Aqua Security I was a Lead Solution Architect for the Software Integrity Group at Synopsys, focusing on scalable and secure CI/CD pipelines.
I also have an occasional podcast and blog called Codifyre, and represent Great Britain at playing Ultimate Frisbee.
