BSides Splunk Founder

I care a lot about the Splunk community and also the community I live in. I currently work for Sideview, a two person company which makes a Splunk-based commercial app for call analytics for Cisco phone systems. I am a 5 time SplunkTrust member and you can find me both in Splunk Answers and on Splunk’s Community Slack channels. I have helped with BSides Splunk now for several years and I hope this format works out well – I do hope that we’ll be able to branch off back into a physical BSides next year. In addition I volunteer at my local school and library and in other places around our community, and with my wonderful wife am raising a couple of teenage daughters in Northern Wisconsin.
