Current Work

I am a research engineer in the networking group at ICSI. My primary activity is working on the Bro Intrusion Detection System and promoting its use in various industries under a grant from the NSF in the SDCI program.

If you are looking for someone to attend an event and speak about Bro, please contact me.

About Me

I received my undergraduate degree in Geography from The Ohio State University in 2003 and began working full time for the OSU Network Security Team in January 2004. As a member of a small team on a large network I played a large number of roles in helping secure the university. Eventually I discovered Bro and found that I could provide a large benefit with novel detection techniques by watching the network with Bro. Time progressed and now I'm working on Bro full time.

I currently live in Worthington, OH with my wife and two children.
