What This Is

This section contains a number of subheadings where I can archive and organize the various things I’m studying/working on from a month-to-month basis. It’s essentially a long list of tersely formatted status updates that I collect and maintain along with some commentary.

Squeak Records: a small, independent record label/media company based in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Squeak has officially launched, both legally with the formation of an LLC and digitally with the advent of our online storefront.

Big Huge Giant’s first EP should be completed sometime within the next 8 weeks to 3 months. The label’s next order of business involves preparing for this release: organizing bookings, promotional campaigns, and merchandise sales channels.

Despite my revulsion at Facebook, Google, and the overall Social/Ad-Industrial Complex, the success of Squeak depends on my ability to effectively employ these tools.



I’ve been bingeing documentaries from the AT&T Archives.


I recently started collaborating with the USF Whitehatters security club as a mentor and coach.

I’ve become heavily involved with the Tampa Devs meetup group. I’ll be giving a talk on application security at the August meeting.
