100% of my income comes from donations just like yours.
In my former life, I was a software engineer and consultant for Fortune 100 companies such as Hewlett Packard and Lehman Bros. But I hated those jobs and I wanted to make a difference in the world instead of helping bankers line their pockets, so I quit corporate America in 2007. I've been freelancing ever since.
Now, I write free software that helps close the gap between what multi-national conglomerates can do with technology, and what you can do with it. Don't take my word for it, watch my video and see it happen in real time!
I have demonstrated a lifelong commitment to end-user empowerment. For more than a decade, I have contributed code to free software projects I find valuable, and even started some of my own, including:
- WordPress PGP Encrypted Emails - Generic PGP and S/MIME crypto library enabling myriad privacy applications built on WordPress that integrates seamlessly with WooCommerce.
- Jekyll Skeleton - Feature-rich static site templates supporting iCalendar event feeds, multi-author blogs, gettext-like multi-language translations, SEO-friendly (Schema.org-focused) structured data markup, and more.
- Many highly-ranked "Awesome" lists such as Awesome-Cybersecurity-Blueteam, and Awesome-Lockpicking.
- Free educational resources such as my Data Structures and Algorithms examples.
