For day-to-day correspondence, I prefer email with PGP encryption.

My primary address is [email protected], and although I don’t use social media these days nearly as much as I used to, you should still be able to find me here and there.

PGP is a time-tested and proven method of protecting email communications with end-to-end encryption (which prevents emails from being read by any third parties, including the email provider). Historically, PGP has been difficult to use, and it was not possible for most users to set up and regularly use PGP.

Please download the public key below and use it with your email client of choice to achieve seamless end–to–end encrypted correspondence with me; most email clients already support it in one way or another. That said, all this is entirely optional; be certain I will reply to your regular emails just as fine.

For example, if you are using Gmail, then there’s this browser extension, called Flowcrypt, which brings PGP directly to your Gmail inbox. On this note, I should mention I’m a happy paying Protonmail customer, and so far my experience has been thoroughly enjoyable and since I started using it, it was as seamless as it gets.
