How would you describe yourself?
I've been a software developer for several decades, specializing in code reverse engineering. This led first to work as an expert witness and consultant in connection with software, trade secret and patent disputes, then to becoming a lawyer, with an LL.M. in intellectual property. My work has included research for the Privacy Foundation's Workplace Surveillance Project, and a co-authored peer-reviewed paper demonstrating problems in the code for a web anonymizing service.
What most excites you about Anonos?
Anonos's principals, Gary LaFever and Ted Myerson, approach data privacy, security and data value by welcoming critiques, nit-picking, "what-ifs?," and "what-abouts?". I work as a "devil's advocate," combining my technical background and legal education, to help test, challenge and validate select Anonos initiatives. I am excited about their genuine desire to deliver real-world solutions to real-world data privacy, security and value problems.
