This blog is meant to serve as an archive of my work that normally gets buried on twitter. If anything catches your eye, please reach out because I am always looking to collaborate on something fun. Getting to know new people and knowledge-sharing is always a good time too.
Outside of work, I explore whatever allows me to focus on offensive approaches to technology, making malicious hardware, research, teaching, and knowledge-share. At work, I have been building infrastructure and small teams for corp IT at small to medium businesses for the last 17 years. Though, as of 2019, I am now part of an internal Red Team & Proactive Engagement group.
You can reach me at https://twitter.com/_MG_ via DM (my DMs are open).
