I manage a small security team in a very big quasi-govt agency. I take the utmost delight in being a nexus for security related topics and bringing a picture at various levels of detail to customers, peers and the team members who report to me. My depth of expertise is primarily from PKI and web service security as that has been the cornerstone of my work as a developer for large scale access control, authentication and key management solutions. My more recent work has focused on network protections, risk analysis and operational security, and it's been great to transition from teacher to learner here on IT Security.

When I'm not doing software stuff, I study medieval India, study dance, and work in the Burlesque scene.

comment Doing a lot of things in one day— good or bad?
Um... no. Chances are good that you can't prevent your brain from doing anything. You can learn how it works and roll with it. If what you're doing is a bunch of mental "tasks" around a single goal, then you can do it for a long time. If what you're doing is a single "task" (reading, or memorizing, or quizzing yourself) - then your brain will get tired, and you'll need some sort of change - subject matter, new task, etc.
