AvatarI was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on June 15th, 2006; about 5 months shy of my 40th birthday. They call it Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA). I’m doing the only thing that can be done; living with it and managing the risks.

I am an information security analyst at a large pharmaceutical firm located in the Princeton, NJ area. I am also a web developer and Linux/UNIX/OS X/Perl/PHP/AJAX geek. Jack of all trades ( and master of none ). I love technology and how it empowers human beings to do the most incredible things but hate it when it is used to enslave or limit.

When not entertaining my employers with the security equivalent of TPS reports, I spend most of my free time researching new programming and security technologies. In the past I have been a heavy Linux user but recently have found myself in love with OS X.

I am also an amateur (idiot with a camera) photographer, beer and coffee enthusiasts ( I love a good Belgian Ale and Ethiopian Harrar ), father of two and a husband.
