When not working on,, supporting 1CRM, writing & pentesting for Radically Open Security, or acting as a DPO, I'm the maintainer of PHPMailer, the second-most forked PHP project on GitHub, and probably the world's most popular email sending code. I'm a contributor to many other open-source projects, and I wrote the HTML5 email address spec. I'm an accomplished PHP coder, Linux sysadmin, technical writer, and MySQL DBA. I'm a strong advocate of digital rights and privacy - I love GDPR! I've been speaking at technical conferences in Europe and around the world since 2006. I live in the French alps with my wife, kids, cat, guitars, bikes, and far too many skis.
