    I consider myself a professional problem solver and technology tinkerer. I enjoy being put in challenging situations that require me to learn a new tool or system quickly. I work best when I’m setup with a problem and a test environment and can tinker to my heart’s content!

    I started work as a SOC analyst, progressed to a position as a SIEM content developer, then SIEM engineer, before finally moving to my current position as a Splunk Professional Services Consultant.

    The combination of deep technical knowledge, love of learning, and love of communicating come together quite nicely to produce a desire to teach. I want to be able to give back to the people in the infosec community and teaching is a perfect opportunity to do just that.

    In addition to my personal opinion of Cybrary and my desire to teach, I also saw producing educational material in the Cyber Security space as a wonderful opportunity to build my brand, establish my expertise, and to positively affect more people in the industry.

    In my free time, I spend a lot of time in the gym (fun fact, I used to be a certified personal trainer!) or reading books. I love fantasy, personal development, and obviously an educational technical book on occasion. My favorite book of all time is The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. If you love beautiful prose, engaging characters, and being swept into another land by the magic of words, I could not recommend it more highly! I am a big PC person. I love building them, gaming (mostly single player RPG games like Zelda, Elder Scrolls, the Witcher, etc.), and doing random lab work.
