Currently my role, as CEO of Behaviosec, is delivering innovative security technology to aid in consumer protection.

With over 20+ years entrepreneurial and technical leadership experience in venture-backed startups, and global technology corporations. I have a strong international background of work & education in Ireland, Sweden, France, US, UK, Benelux, Germany.

I was Co-founder/CTO at PKI specialists Celo Communications (Celo) first in Stockholm, Sweden and then relocating to Mountain View, California.

I'm a cryptographer by training, software developer by trade, and entrepreneur by accident. Having successfully navigated the start-up journey, I've also developed a number of commercial security applications and spoken extensively on innovation, cryptography & network security.
