Most tech content is now flashy and lacks substantive technical and business opinion. I think that's not cool.

I am currently the lead security engineer at Headway. Before this, I was the first security engineer at dbt Labs. In my past life, I spent 3.5 years as an investor at Dell Technologies Capital, where I focused on enterprise infrastructure startups, specifically security, AI/ML, and cloud infrastructure.

I did my PhD at MIT where my research focused on protecting user data in large-scale, distributed web services. Out of boredom, I blogged about interesting research projects and started a cybersecurity summer program called Cybersecurity Factory, where I incubated 14 early-stage companies. 

In this newsletter, I share random thoughts that interest me as a security engineer and leader. If you want to hear more of my random thoughts,

I won't share your email with 3rd parties. After all, I did do a PhD in security and privacy. You can learn more about my past life on my website. To get a sense of the content in my newsletters, you can find previous ones here.
