Charlie is eVAL's principal defensive security engineer and systems architect with a focus in the LAMP stack, Strict MVC Architecture, Cloud and VPS server maintenance / administration, Linux system administration, VMWare, Oracle, Canonical, Amazon S3, and a splash of Ruby on Rails.
Charlie has been working nearly exclusively with Linux based operating systems and security since 2000, with in-depth experience with RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu, and SuSE. As of recent, he has started working with BSD based distributions for more security-centric applications such as corporate firewalls and routers. Aside from physical and virtual server management, he also writes and maintains elegant PHP applications. Charlie's preferred web stack, at present, is a PHP backend with jQuery for the user agent logic. His flagship application is Core Plus, located at corepl.us. It is a CMS with an emphasis on user-friendliness, SEO readiness, über security, and blazing performance.
In his free-time, he enjoys a good game of Munchkin and has developed a vast appreciation for Meade.
