He works on EFF's Tech Projects team as a software and security engineer, currently maintaining HTTPS Everywhere and Panopticlick. He has also contributed to projects such as Let's Encrypt and SecureDrop. He talks to crowds of people on soap boxes and stages in far off places, and sometimes they listen.
