Biography

Verus Fabula OR La Historia Verdadera

Work History

From 1986-1997 I was at BellSouth in Atlanta. I held positions from Software Engineer to Sr Security Architect and made many long-time friends along the way.

In 1990 I was a lead programmer on the team that developed a 3-tier client-server user administration framework for the 9-state region's Unix systems. It uses a distributed, delegated access-control interface to manage 25,000 Service Representatives and 50+ Sys-Admins, across 9 states -- Enterprise Identity Management before it was cool (i.e. no directory server, no web service, no PeopleSoft interfaces).

In 1997 I took a 5-year hiatus to work for a security software firm out of Seattle as a Sales Engineer and Security Consultant - a job that I thoroughly enjoyed as it exposed me to many different companies and their varied approaches to security, software distribution and customer focus.

After CyberSafe dissolved in 2002, I returned to BellSouth as a contractor until 2006.
