About me

Hello! I’m Deborah. I’m a seasoned project and operations manager and a security awareness trainer. Next to managing operations or projects, I also have experience with writing and implementing information security policies and (technical) documentation.

I work for Radically Open Security as a freelance project manager (infra & ops). Next to herding cats, I also give digital security training to civil rights organizations.

Self-taught, I’ve worked in the arts, digital rights and (open-source) technology sphere for nearly 20 years, both for small organizations as well as a big telecommunications company. I participated in the Bellingcat workshop in 2019 where I learned a broad set of OSINT research techniques and tools.

You can find my CV here.

As an activist, I’m vocal about defending human rights, inequality, digital security and privacy, especially important in this age of (surveillance) capitalism.

Geeky stuff aside, I’m also a ceramist with a focus on hand-building. The Japanese firing technique Raku is one my favorite methods of firing. I’m currently focused on a series of ‘Face Vases’. You can take a peek at my work here

Music is very important, too. I have a big library full of weird and eclectic stuff; from avant-garde, experimental and electronic stuff, to hip-hop, (noisy)-punk, new-wave, traditional world music, doom metal, jazz, (contemporary) classical music and (Japanese) noise ~
