Some Professional Stuff

I work in computer security.

I wrote a book, twice; it's called Building Internet Firewalls and you can find more stuff about firewalls and my first co-author, Brent Chapman at Great Circle Associates.

I review books for ;login:.

Coloring Pages Counting mazes

Paper doll templates

Reviews of (almost entirely black) pens

Free Photoshop brushes

My father is Arnold Zwicky.
