Bio

I am a cryptocurrency and blockchain security evangelist with over 30 years of security experience with the U.S. Army, U.S. Department of State, University of Washington and as a private consultant. My focus is on the criminal implications and security applications for cryptocurrencies and blockchains, both current and future. As a Diplomatic Security Service Special Agent, I served as Regional Security Officer at U.S. Embassies and Consulates in Asia, the South Pacific and Europe and as the State Department Liaison to the U.S. Marshals Service where I coordinated the return of fugitives to the U.S. Upon retirement, I established the University of Washington’s international travel security program. I worked with the World Economic Forum on its Travel Initiative Project Working Group to shape the future of security in travel including the use of blockchains. My interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain security has led me to focus on the crime implications and security applications for cryptocurrencies and blockchains, both current and future. My goals are to find new uses for blockchains for law enforcement and the security industry, educate the public about the importance of security in cryptocurrencies and blockchains, campaign for the creation of international standards and responsible government regulations and laws for cryptocurrencies and blockchains.
