Director of Research
I'm the director of research here at PortSwigger, where I spend my time researching and inventing novel techniques to hack websites. I then share these techniques with the world via conference presentations and the Web Security Academy - and implement them into Burp Scanner of course. I love seeing how hackers are adapting and developing my techniques to find new vulnerabilities for themselves.
In my spare time I enjoy cycling excessive distances as it's a great means of getting away from my computer - which I bought using a bounty payout, with Bitcoin. Please note, I do have a more sensible bio as well.
My very first computer was a 486, on which I coded a bar-fighting text adventure using QBasic. The sprawling single-file codebase had no structure or functions, and no control flow except IF and GOTO. It remains the most "dynamic" experience I've ever created.
I'm really lucky in that I get to implement most of my good ideas at work. That said, there is hackxor.net.
Nice try. No really - you'll just have to guess.
