Hi, I'm Den 👋

Sharing my love for computers, reverse engineering, machine learning, and Halo.

I am an engineer and product manager. I help build software that makes other software more secure, record a podcast where I interview notable folks about their career lessons, build a utility to keep your Windows machine awake, maintain a list of resources to help product managers grow, and tinker with USB data from a popular button box. In the past I’ve reverse engineered and documented the Halo Infinite REST API.

You can find me on GitHub, LinkedIn, YouTube, Reddit, Stack Overflow, and Hacker News.
