About Me

As an IT professional in the San Francisco Bay Area, I am passionate about computer security in today's connected world where participation is necessary and a focus on data protection is paramount. An innate curiosity drives me to explore new ideas and possibilities, but an analytical approach to problem-solving and a task-oriented mindset keep me focused on the goal. I strive not to meet expectations but to exceed them in everything I do.

I am a foodie; I am a technologist, but more than anything I am a student because I believe we are never truly done learning.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
— Walt Disney

PGP Key

Should you wish to verify my signature or send me something sensitive, my public key can be found below. I expire my keys yearly. A new key will be posted shortly before its expiration.

Current key 8624E176 (7702665C8624E176) updated 8-31-2017.

Due to a significant change in how I will be handling key updates from now on, I have provided a Key Transition Statement signed by both my old and new key.

To import the full key into your keyring, use the following command:

wget -q -O- https://aaronmast.com/s/8624E176.asc | gpg --import -
