Hey, I’m Dan Ballard. I’m a programmer interested in programming languages, security, privacy, networked systems, and AI. As a person my interests also extend to rock climbing, gaming, consuming lots of media (books, comics, TV, videos, and sometimes movies), science fiction, and electronic music.

I currently work for Amazon. Before that I worked at a startup building scalable systems for identity verification software.

Me on the Web

dan
