Having drifted towards security, he now focusses on helping developers understand how to break their own apps and build up offensive skills that are complemented by teaching secure coding patterns – if you don’t know how to break it, you don’t know how to protect it!

When not building or breaking, Troy’s into snowboarding, lots of tennis and fast cars.
