I’ve been using computers since the early age of six. When I was 13, I began to study certain computing topics more in-depth. I started learning the concept of packet-switched networks while writing scripts in a Pascal-based language via an IDE known as SCAR Divi.
I then began to focus on common web-based vulnerabilities. From there I transitioned into learning general cyber security topics and started to become proficient in different programming languages, network security, and endpoint hardening. Over the years I continued to assimilate these topics, while I acquired more knowledge in generalized networking, penetration testing, and risk analysis alongside my primary focus of defensive security.
To this day, I continue to further my education in every possible way including but not limited to attending conferences, listening to podcasts, and actively participating in the information security community. I also participate in cyber security clubs and regularly engage in non-competitive CTF challenges such as Hack The Box. My passion for this field only continues to grow stronger.
