Welcome to my iSchool web page. The School of Information is part of the University of Texas. The discipline of Library and Information Science (LIS) is long and storied, tracing its roots from antiquity (think ancient Alexandria) through today's multi-faceted and highly intensive challenges around effectively organizing, finding, using, and sharing information.

I've got a pretty long history with this place, having completed both my MLIS and PhD here. I'm no longer a student but I remain an adjunct faculty member, teaching classes on information security, surveillance/privacy, and the intelligence community.

My day job is in the tech industry where I am a consultant and author, working in the area of Information and IT Security.

I live here in Austin with my wife and our son (who took the picture "ghost dad" above).
