(SOME BOOKS I'VE WRITTEN)
"... Huang and Menders wrote a manual that “gets right to the point,” with the style set to continue how “Practical Cyber Security” had a plethora of resources, examples, websites, a term glossary, and more — all to further illustrate the material of the chapters."

(OBLIGATORY INSERTION OF MY BIG DUMB FACE ON THIS WEBSITE)
If I had a superpower, it would be my ability to take technical, painfully boring yet vitally important topics and convert them into easily understandable, engaging, and -- most importantly -- USEFUL information.
[My 2nd superpower, if it existed, would be my ability to identify and eliminate all types risk for individuals (i.e., You) and organizations (i.e., Them).]
[My 3rd superpower would be not implying I have more than 2 superpowers.]
I write about privacy, cyber security and risk avoidance for organizations and individuals. I have worked closely with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies across the U.S. on providing solutions to their mobile technology requirements.
I am a journalist and documentary photographer focused on women’s and children’s issue and the alleviation of poverty around the world.

My photography is included in the permanent collections of The International Center of Photography, The Museum of the City of New York, New-York Historical Society, Museum of Chinese in the Americas, New York City Fire Museum and other institutions.
I'm a National Fellow of The Explorers Club, a professional society dedicated to advancing field research. I am an Advisor to Princeton University’s Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, where I advise startup founders on strategy and risk avoidance.
