Welcome to the personal webpage of Harley Green!
It is my hope that you will be able to learn a little about me through this website and find something useful to your life.
A little about myself:
I grew up in Southern California and Eastern Washington, returning to Southern California for college. While attending USC at the Viterbi School of Engineering I met my wife Adrienne (you can read more about us at our shared homepage). I’ve been interested in computers for as long as I can remember and become especially interested in security and networking since starting college.
During the summers I worked at The Aerospace Corporation as an intern and eventually part-time during my senior year. Upon graduation I started full-time at Aerospace where I started working with network systems and carving out work related to computer/network security. I immediately started my masters degree in computer science while working full-time thanks to a generous tuition reimbursement program that Aerospace provided. At this time my wife quit her job in finance to start a new career path in education so to help with expenses I began tutoring computer science. Surprisingly I found that I enjoyed tutoring and the students seemed to really appreciate my work as well so have continued offering tutoring when I have time and students are interested.
While in California I started a grass-roots organization to help educate Californians about their few remaining 2nd Amendment rights, which in urban areas meant open carry. So in the summer of 2010 South Bay Open Carry (SBOC) had its inaugural event of doing a litter pick-up through the streets and along the strand in Hermosa Beach, CA. SBOC grew faster than I could keep up running it by myself so at the urging of many members formed a board of directors which allowed it to continue in my absence.
Growing tired of the oppression of rights, burdensome government taxes and regulations, lack of affordable decent housing, and lack of teaching jobs for my wife, we decided to leave the state. Thankfully my company had offices elsewhere and was willing to relocate us to Virginia!
I really enjoy the work I do now which supports a variety of government customers in National Security Space arena. My job allows me to work on many different projects at once so that I can continuously grow my skill-set and learn new things.
When I’m not enjoying my day-job I stay busy volunteering with the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) to expand and protect our fundamental right to self-defense as codified in the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution. In my free time I enjoy hiking, bicycling, gardening, shooting, and traveling.
