Biography

I'm a Senior Director of Online Trust at the Internet Society, and I've co-lead the encryption project since 2020.
 
I have over 25 years of experience in high technology, all focused on bringing new, industry-transforming communications technologies to market. I was involved at the founding stages of ethernet, routing, switching, VOIP, unified messaging, and email authentication and services in both startups and Fortune 500 companies.

I have been an Online Trust Alliance member for over a decade and chairman since 2013. In addition, I have worked with the OTA in a consulting role as a project lead, analyst, and author.

I have a technical and business background with a Master’s Degree in Engineering from Stanford.
