Profile Experience
For many years, I was a TV producer working for a national network based in LA. When hackers based here in SF first cracked the digital broadcast signal in 2012, during the London Olympics, I knew something was changing. Over the next few years, I watched our entire industry flail against increased attacks, piracy, and exploitation, and as our platform became ever more compromised, advertisers started pulling their money out. But that's not why I left. I left because as the TV industry fought its battle, our own internal strategy was getting less and less transparent. Orders came from higher and higher up, and were more and more vague. I watched firsthand as boardroom executives shaped and packaged what we passed off to the world as journalism. In the end, I started to believe the hackers more than I believed my own company. So I decided to join them. As it turned out, I wasn’t alone.
Profiles Ideals
Protecting my family, and making sure that as many people as possible have access to as much of the truth as possible.
