  • A little bit about why I do what I do.


    Cyber Security is my passion, I work every day to be as many steps ahead of threats as is possible. I strive to improve my abilities to analyze, communicate and fortify. I want to know how to solve every problem that could possibly arise and prevent the ones that never need to happen. I take pride in my work and aim to make the things I've done the templates for future projects.


  • Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
