I’m a dynamic and results-oriented leader in technical product marketing with over 10+ of experience crafting and executing cybersecurity go-to-market strategies. I’m also a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and accomplished author of two best-selling security books.

In all my previous roles, I create and execute effective marketing strategies that drive leads, sales, and thought leadership for innovative security products. I leverage my skills in B2B marketing, analyst relations, and presentations to communicate the value proposition and differentiation to various audiences, including customers, partners, media, and analysts. I also manage and lead a teams of talented marketing professionals and collaborate with cross-functional teams to deliver on the company’s goals and vision.

In addition to my marketing role, I am a passionate independent podcast creator and infosec writer. I host the Error Code podcast, providing engaging and informative narratives on IoT and OT security. I have also co-authored two books, The Art of Invisibility (with Kevin Mitnick) and When Gadgets Betray Us, that address the security and privacy challenges and solutions in the digital age. Through my podcasts and books, I aim to educate and inspire the public and the industry on the importance and best practices of information security.
