It was the fall of 1994, when my high school received a major upgrade, we received the internet! It was my sophomore year, and I can still clearly remember walking into the computer lab for the first time and being so excited! I started teaching myself about the internet, networking, and hacking at that point.
I hold a bachelor's degree in Theatre and have recently received an Associate's of Applied Sciences in Cyber Security from the College of Southern Nevada. While I was there I also co-founded CSN's Cybersecurity club where I was their first ever president! Plus, I also was a lab researcher and writer in Network+, Digital Forensics, and Ethical Hacking for CSN until I graduated.
After graduation I joined a local cybersecurity group, “Shad0w Synd1cate” where I am involved in running some labs and CTF’s (Cybersecurity Capture the Flag) for them. On a personal note I live in the Las Vegas NV area with my wife and our two dogs. When I am not writing and research cybersecurity labs I am playing video games on Steam and Xbox and watching kung fu/action movies!
