I’m Joshua Rogers. Originally from Melbourne, Australia. These days I live in Poland.
I’m currently working at Opera Software keeping it hanging by a thread, and trying to add more threads along the way. In reality, I’m doing all things security: DevSecOps, pentesting, security engineering, security architecture, incident response, security research, network security, and general consulstancy. You’d think I just wrote every field in the online security realm, but no, I truly have to do all of these things.
Moonlighting as a party hostel receptionist, bartender, pubcrawl/boatparty guide in Kraków.
Some call me an all-rounder due to my ability to jump into nearly any situation and get the ball rolling immediately. I get things done when others don’t.
Some people see one part of a problem, I see the whole picture. Putting things into perspective of the whole world is paramount, and both the significance and insignificance of ourselves and surroundings is crucial to driving meaningful change.
I have a BSc in Applied Mathematics and a BA in Cinema/Film studies. I have years of sysadmin experience (linux and freebsd) and even more in security.
My hobbies, interests, and general topics that I’m passionate about include:
- Film History
- Human Rights
- Music (Melodic House, Melodic Techno, House, Rap) (My Spotify)
- Sport (Bicycle Riding, Weight Lifting, Rock Climbing, Rowing)
- Video Game History
New things excite me and I like putting myself into situations that require learning new skills, whether they’re technical, physical, or social, as it enables me to continually test and expand my knowledge.
I like presenting and discussing topics I’m interested in. I’ve also had the privilege of speaking as a domain expert at several conferences.
Since living in Poland, I’ve taught myself B2 Polish. Sometimes I can speak Russian from some learning I did years ago.
Currently, my primary focus revolves around the global alleviation of human suffering. I firmly believe that we can improve the human condition and reduce unnecessary suffering on a worldwide scale.
