The short bio
I'm someone who has been a risk, security, and crisis manager for over 25 years. I've worked all over the world, with organizations that range from Fortune 5 oil and gas firms to NGOs and schools.
More recently, I've been taking all of these lessons and building tools that everyone can employ to help them understand their risks and to be more successful. I'm a firm believer that risk management is made too complicated sometimes so everything I build has to meet the KISS - keep it simple - standard I've for myself.
The challenges you have are complicated enough: you don't need a complicated system to solve them.
