My name is Austin Siford, but I'm also known online under the pseudonym Austin Dizzy.
I was born and raised in Martinsburg, West Virginia; I studied computer and political
science at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia;
and I currently live in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
I’ve been doing this computer thing for more than a decade now, focusing my efforts in
security research, software development, private intelligence, and security awareness.

For more than 6 years, I worked at West Virginia University in the
Information Security and Privacy Office,
where I continue to volunteer my services pro bono. Most recently, since April 2019 I've
worked at Salesforce.com, Inc. doing Product Security.
In my free time, you'll find me stargazing, hiking, and appreciating nature; playing
chess, casual video games, or competitive esports; or reading, contributing to the
community, and spending time with my friends and family.
