Intro

There is an old saying “you don’t know what you don’t know.” These days with warnings over pandemic flu or Teflon pans, carjacking or improperly installed car seats, you really don’t know what is truth and what is not. Some things have been hyped in the media far beyond what is really hazardous, others have been ignored when they really do present a danger to you and your family. This blog is an attempt to sort out the hype from the truth on topics dealing with security, safety, privacy and other related issues.

I bring to the discussion a twenty-year military career with the majority of it as a commissioned Special Forces Officer. My training and experience range from bodyguard work, recovery and rescue, competition shooting, risk management and interpersonal negotiations. I lived over thirteen years in Europe and traveled extensively across the continent. I also have traveled to the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia.

After the military, I was able to leverage my experience, along with degrees in Computer Science and Information Technology and worked as a computer security expert. Over time, I have worked physical security, safety and computer privacy issues of many different types. I am a husband, father, homeowner, and manager. We will talk about how to keep ourselves and our family safe and secure.
