About me

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

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

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. Their work is now more important than ever, and it’s great to know how information or documentation can be verified.

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

Like my work? I’m selling some in my Shopify shop

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 ~
