Daniel García (cr0hn): This is what I do

I'm Daniel García, though everyone calls me Dani.

Yep, that's me in the photo. My wife says my forehead looks like a parking spot for a bus. Good thing I don't rely on my looks for a living.

Searching for "Daniel García" online is like finding a needle in a haystack. So, I adopted an alias long ago:


Not my brightest moment, I'll admit. No one gets it right on the first try.

People often ask what I do for a living. It's not an easy question to answer.

I've been deep into cybersecurity for over 20 years. But it's more than just that.

I love my job. Seriously, I'm passionate about it. And I'm pretty good at it too. Getting paid for something you love? It's amazing.

To give you an idea, I started with computers on a Pentium 200 MMX when I was 15.

At 15, I was already late to the game. But it didn't matter. I spent hours and hours in front of the screen. Not just playing games, although a bit of that too. What I really enjoyed was tinkering with the operating system, the hardware, everything.

Since then, I've been a knowledge sponge. Whether it's operating systems, development, systems, hacking, defense—I love diving into it all like a kid with a new toy, trying to understand how things work.

And I haven't stopped.

Alright, but what exactly do you do?

I’ve worked in companies of all sizes. Been a consultant and led teams. Created products and services with a killer ROI.

I’ve built companies and helped other startups grow.

I code in Python because I love it. I’ve created hundreds of open-source projects.

I’ve traveled half the world giving talks. A lot of talks. I founded one of the most important cybersecurity conferences in Spain.

An old boss once called me a "machine gun of ideas". Not sure if it was a compliment or a critique, but I liked it. So, I kept it.

And I'm not stopping.

What do I do? I solve tough problems. That's what I do. And I do it well. Really well.

What kind of problems?


You know when you've hit a wall with a problem and don't know how to solve it? When you've tried almost everything? When you've spent a fortune on consultants and still have no solution?

That's where I come in. I solve problems.

Today, I love cybersecurity problems. Python and REST APIs. But if you have another problem, ask me. If I can help you, I will. If not, I'll help you find someone who can.

The phrase I hear most from clients is "If we'd hired you sooner, we would've saved a ton of money." My dad always said, "For the lazy and the poor, everything costs twice as much." And he was right.

Before you ask, I'll tell you.

I'm not cheap. If you're looking for something cheap, I'm not your guy. If you want something done well, I'm your guy. If you're looking for cheap and good, that doesn't exist, so don't waste your time.

Want to know more? Just ask me. I don't bite. Well, I might growl a bit, but I don't bite.
