The Blog

I started this blog mostly for the students that I teach to ensure they still have resources and training materials easily accessible to them even though I’m no longer able to teach in person as often as I used to.

This site will mostly focus on tutorials and discussions on technology (mostly system administration or security topics) and marketing advice. I will also be posting challenges and practice scenarios that will be free and open to anyone, as well as how to solve them.

I'm just an InfoSec noob trying to learn, teach, and have some fun. Usually found in the SOC, mentoring/studying, or doing bug bounties and CTF's with my friends. I’m a noob that’s been messing with technology for as long as I can remember. Most of my work has been through independent ventures with some friends, research at my University, and volunteer work, some of which is listed on my Linkedin page. I really started getting interested in the information security industry after competing in competitions such as CyberPatriot in high school.

While my main focus is Information Security, I have also focused on marketing and system administration by spending years building forums and software ventures with friends. One of our largest forums grew to over 100,000 users within two years and our largest project ended up with over 93,000 paid subscribers in 31 countries in just 15 months.

When I have free time I’m usually spending it teaching students, giving technical talks locally and at conferences, as well helping companies through vulnerability research through their responsible disclosure policies. I have reported over 100 vulnerabilities in 60+ websites, applications, and/or products for companies such as Microsoft, Apple, Netflix, eBay/PayPal, Adobe, Nokia, RedHat, Zynga, Uber, BlackBerry, Zendesk, Yandex, Constant Contact, and many more!
