Hello! My name is Tyler Hicks and I live in Dallas, TX. I’ve been involved with Linux security since 2007 and am currently the Ubuntu Security Technical Lead. My day-to-day duties include AppArmor development, eCryptfs maintainer, and producing features and security updates for the Ubuntu Linux distribution.

When I’m not trying to improve the security of Ubuntu systems, I try to keep myself busy with hobbies. That includes attempting to woodwork, turning wrenches on vintage cars, home improvement projects, and travel.

You can learn more about me, contact me, and even take a look at what I’ve been working on by following these links:
