About Me

My name is Richard Gowen and this is my little corner of the Internet.

I live in the Dallas area with my wife Tracy and our two children.
I currently work as a Solution Architect which allows me to take advantage of my 20+ years of experience in all areas of IT.

In my spare time I am a hacker and maker and gamer and brewmaster and programmer and more. ... all the things.

I'm one of the founders of an educational non-profit hackerspace / makerspace named TheLab.ms in Plano Texas. This space is a great outlet for all my creative interests.

In hacker and infosec circles I am known by the handle @alt_bier which is also the name I use when publishing training materials and projects.

Where to find me:
