Google
Chaos Specialist

Matt cut his technical teeth in the MUDs and IRC dens of the 90s while daylighting in search and rescue. His longtime white hat security hobby and years of work experience in high-pressure environments converged in a career change to UNIX system administration. While working for a government research lab, his diverse background readily lent itself to new work assignments in both blue team security operations and red team penetration testing. Today he leads security incident management at Google, where he strives to infuse security functions with the best practices of disaster management, and where he explores the limits of speed, quality, and affordability in the fields of digital forensics and incident response.
