About me

Alex Kuhl

Security Expert, Developer Extraordinaire, Educator

My name is Alex Kuhl and welcome! I have been described as a renaissance man, a sugary donut full of skepticism, and a cinnamon twist of cynicism, amongst others.

I typically am found solving the latest mathematical challenges while wrestling wild bears in the Appalachian Mountains. When actually at home, I am located in the Northern Kentucky region near Cincinnati, OH, plundering the high seas of industry as a security expert at Paycor and occasional consultant at my side business Paper Traitors. In the past I have climbed the Ivory Tower and inspired young minds as a lecturer at Northern Kentucky University.

Academically, I have studied computer science and mathematics with research in security, graphics, and HCI. I like discussing just about any deep topic, like physics, philosophy, or world religions. My hobbies include hiking, disc golf, tennis, chess, guitar, typography, and myriad others.
