About Me...

I work at MIT in the Information Services and Technology Department (IS&T) and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL). For more than 20 years, I managed MIT's Internet presence. I also built a significant portion of MIT's Security Infrastructure, including our X.509 certificate deployment. MIT probably has one of the largest deployments (and certainly the oldest, dating back to 1996) of X.509 client certificates. Today, as part of IS&T's Customer Service organization, I consult with Faculty, Students and departments on a variety of IT topics ranging from Security to Websites, databases, whatever. 

I am one of the original authors of the Kerberos Authentication System. I have also built and deployed MIT’s X.509 Certificate Infrastructure. I am a member of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and served as an Area Director for Security from 1994 through 2003.

My recent work has been in helping to build MIT App Inventor, a "blocks" based visual programming language that empowers both beginners and accomplished programmers to easily build Android and iOS mobile apps.

When not hacking, I raise Guinea Pigs along with my Wife (though we also have a rabbit). We are both members of the Essex County Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association.

About this Web Site

I'm a pretty good programmer and general computer hacker. However I am not much of an artist. So if this website doesn't look pleasing, it is because I haven't quite figured out the artistic part.

This website is hosted on Google's App Engine This website is implemented using the Django python web framework. It is currently hosted on a virtual linux server located at linode.com.
