About me

Alex Kuhl

Expert Human, Computer Security Extraordinaire, Educator, Programmer

My name is Alex Kuhl and welcome! I have been described as a modern day renaissance man, a sugary donut full of skepticism, and a cinnamon twist of cynicism, and others not fit to print.

I typically am found solving the latest mathematical challenges while wrestling wild bears in the Appalachian Mountains. Home base is in the greater Cincinnati region where I plunder the high seas of industry and occasionally do consulting. In the past I have climbed the Ivory Tower and inspired young minds as a lecturer at Northern Kentucky University, and still occasionally serve as an adjunct for classes there.

Academically, I have studied computer science and mathematics with research in security, graphics, and HCI at Northern Kentucky University and North Carolina State University. I like discussing just about any deep topic, especially physics and philosophy. My hobbies include hiking, disc golf, tennis, chess, guitar, typography, and myriad others.
