Hi  I'm Paul.

I work as a Security Analyst for a Community College in Nova Scotia, Canada. At work I build stuff to help myself, technical support staff and management answer questions.

I am an open source author (I write software and give it away for free) and staunch OSS supporter. I don't believe that people should have to pay to be safe while online or anywhere else for that matter.

You can find me on Twitter
