I was a black hat hacker in my teens and early twenties. In college I sold fake IDs, later committing fraud and running various scams, including phishing, credit card fraud, and identity theft. I was caught in December 2004. I worked for the secret service for two years, providing training and consulting and helping them understand how hackers and fraudsters think.
I speak at law enforcement & business events and at conferences. I've been interviewed for TV, radio, print, websites, and college classes. I've been told my talks are informative, entertaining, and sometimes scary.
I do not charge any speaker fees. I will speak nearly anywhere in the world for nothing more than expenses. It's my hope that I can help make up for my wrong doings by helping others.
