Not So Recently...

  • In 1988 attended the University of Bradford during which time authored various popular Freeware/Shareware software including ResPlay, ModObj, ModRes, ModEdit, ModPlay, Play, and was radio station manager of Ramair.
  • In 1992 completed my degree in Electronics, Communications, and Computer Systems and went on to work on a PhD based on the internet control of a Robotic Telescope. Initially using an interactive gopher server, but switching to the NCSA web server in October 1993, and then Apache after joining the core development team in April 1995.
  • In 1996 joined UK Web as technical director and worked on a number of projects including co-writing the focus conferencing system, interactive Teletext and Internet games for BSkyB, and founded the Apache Week publication.
  • In 1997 founded C2Net Europe, designing and developing Stronghold, a secure web server based on Apache, and building up a small team as Managing Director. Contributed to various open source projects including mod_ssl and became a founding member of the OpenSSL project.
  • In 2000 C2Net merged with Red Hat and I took on the role of leading the Security Response Team. I'm an editorial board member of the Mitre CVE project (since 2002), a founding member of the Apache Software Foundation, and chair of the ASF Security Team (since 2006).

I'm a Open Source enthusiast and Maker, working at Red Hat to improve software security.

In any spare time I work on various home automation software and hardware, i've been known to wander onto stage as part of Sonik, and I'm probably listening to A State of Trance
