Who Are We
When he was 14, Sean broke the family computer by moving the Windows 95 system files around in an effort to ‘clean up’ the C:\ drive. Through stupid luck and fear of his mother, he was able to restore the system before anyone else found out. Thus began his interest in breaking computers. Since then, he’s conducted “cyber” researched for defense contractors (that’s what they called it, ok?), had a great time being an application security consultant, co-organized BSidesLA for the last four years, and is a Managing Partner at Cytense. He has somehow convinced the amazing people below to help him put on this con, and he’s quite happy about that.
Sean is a veteran, and if you too are a vet and would like to attend ShellCon, send him an email.
Funsized has been playing or running hacking villages since 2010. Unable to pick one hobby, he decided to try as many as he could. He enjoys robotics, software defined radios, machining, tamper evident devices, hardware hacking and juggling. He’s also an avid foodie, and will talk cooking with anyone who asks.
Terry joined as a core organizer of BSides LA in year two and has been a backbone to the Ops team. He also serves as a board member of Security B Conferences of California. By vocation, Terry is the founder of D6 Research. He’s involved in other cons, CFP committees and has been active in sharing his knowledge by presenting, doing workshops and published works.
Josh joined as an organizer of BSidesLA in year two. He also serves as a board member of Security B Conferences of California. Josh is the Founder and Managing Partner of Net Force. He’s involved in other conferences, whether it be speaking, organizing, or attending. When he’s not doing behind the scenes work, he creates trouble for Sean.

Jarrad has a criminal mind but a huge conscience so when he was introduced to the security community in college he immediately knew it was a match. His career path ultimately lead him to systems and network administration rather than security but he has stayed involved through conferences, local user groups, and the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition because he figures that it is probably a good idea to keep an eye on what you people are up to.

Lori joined her first Internet startup as a senior system administrator. When that company went public, she was hooked, and helping smaller firms prevail against well established rivals has been her passion ever since. She is currently COO at a company that specializes in security consulting among other disciplines.
Lori is also a mother of five. Between the kids, the dog, and the horse, she is grateful for a full and happy home. And the occasional escape to the woods with her husband.
Founder of TOOOL.us, hackerspaces, and a company or two Eric finds he’s best at home when he’s getting people to work together for a singular cause. When he’s not playing a hacker on TV or faking it till he makes it. He resides in SF as his home base looking to raise capital for fake startups…
