I’m the co-founder and CEO of Tall Poppy. My company works with tech platforms, movie studios, and non-profits to protect their employees from personal cybersecurity threats and online harassment.
Before Tall Poppy, I spent a year doing public interest tech work at the ACLU as a Technology Fellow. Prior to the ACLU, I worked on security teams at Microsoft, Salesforce, and Slack. I’ve worn just about every hat in cybersecurity, from code review to incident response to policy.
I’ve also been a long-time tech and inclusion activist. I worked to organize tech workers against the Trump administration’s agenda and to protect #metoo whistleblowers.
For fun, my husband and I run a local Ottawa Mastodon federated social media server for a few hundred of our neighbours, and I advocate for building more dense, sustainable housing as a board member of Make Housing Affordable. I love skiing in the winter and camping in the summer.
Ask me anything about scaling security at startups, personal cybersecurity, online harassment, whistleblowing, inclusion, affordable housing, the Fediverse, and more!
