I've been immersed in Internet security for over 15 years and it’s constantly evolving. The attackers aren't resting or losing their skills and that means I can't either. When I'm not developing my own skills and processes in my home lab or absorbing open source training to keep my skills up, I am taking professional training and maintaining my certs. My SANS certs (SANS GCFA, GCFE, GWAPT, GREM, and GNFA), Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), and Red Hat Certified Engineer, as well as Splunk user and admin training give me a wide and stable base to hone my craft.

My skills and experience are not just classroom-based. I've put them to use in environments ranging from the Federal Government to large and mid-size corporate settings to higher education. I've helped create and implement information security programs from scratch, stepped into existing organizations and helped them excel, and played key roles in the standing up of a entire global SOC and SIEM solution for a company of over 100k employees. I'm comfortable in roles from incident response, security analysis, digital forensics, SecOps, IDS/IPS and SIEM implementation, all the way to security awareness and technical training.

Let’s talk about how I can bring all these benefits to bear on your information security needs.
