Hi, I’m Chris. I love music, software, books, and Sunday evenings on the couch, noodling on the guitar while watching Netflix. I’ve been living in San Francisco since 2001.
I work at Google as a software security engineer on Chrome, where I work on hardening Chrome’s underpinnings and securing the web platform runtime. (I was previously on the Secure UX sub-team, and before that I did Web PKI... things.) I used to be on the Android team at Google. Previously, I was the Technology Director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a Principal Security Consultant at iSEC Partners (now NCC Group), and a web developer at a couple small shops. Doing linguistics and French literature in university prepared me well for these jobs, weirdly.
I’ve recorded some electronic music:
I’ve also played guitar and bass in some bands:
Rara Replica: Feral Heart (guitar)
Dot Punto.: Agua Viva (guitar, voice)Dot Punto.: Histórica (guitar, voice)
