I am the founder and CEO of Neocrym, a new AI-powered music licensing company. I have spent much of my career working on different problems in audio, machine learning, computer security, and distributed systems. Before I dove into the startup world, I used to do software engineering at Uber and at several US Government agencies.

Currently, I am the founder and CEO at Neocrym. Previously, I worked at:
- The University of Minnesota, where I was researching ways to guess the content of TLS-encrypted traffic based on timing information.
- Anton, which was an ultimately-doomed enterprise software startup that I cofounded.
- Uber, where I worked on Uber's Developer API allowing anybody to programmatically book rides. I was also the tech lead for a hacky prototype that another team eventually turned into UberHEALTH--Uber's non-emergency medical transportation product.
- The US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). I was looking for vulnerabilities in the Bitcoin protocol that could theoretically be exploited by a quantum computer.

In addition to my personal blog, I also regularly write at:
- Click Track, my email newsletter analyzing the future of the music business.
- Dark Shift, a pop-culture publication.
- Operational Security for Activists, a free online site offering tips on how activists can securely organize and communicate.
- Machine Learning Glossary, an online guide to obscure machine learning terms.
I designed, built, and open-sourced these projects. The company I founded--Neocrym--actively maintains them:
- ScalarStop, a Python library that helps you keep track of your machine learning experiments.
- Provose, the easiest way to build Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure. A HashiCorp Terraform module.
- Babycat, a library for manipulating audio files, with bindings available for Rust, C, Python, and WebAssembly.
