At a Glance

I have 18 years of experience in information technology and information security. I've had my hands in a little bit of everything, from web design, web application development, and server administration, to vulnerability assessments, general training, and incident response.

I am passionate about computer technology, and enjoy being part of a like minded team focused on finding solutions to technical problems to help people get (or get back) on track.
