Retired United States Marine after 21 years of service with 17 being in the
Information Technology field. It was challenging yet a fulfilling career. The
17 years was a blessing having had multiple assignments which has contributed
to my personal and professional growth. My last assignment provided me the
opportunity to enter the Infosec community and contribute to the building of a
Cyber Defense capability for the Marine Corps. I’ve really enjoyed the
continuous learning and immersing myself within the infosec community. I’m
originally from Portland, Maine but recently relocated to Wake Forest NC from
Ellicott City, Maryland. I’m the proud father of Daniel (19) and Preston (12).
My hobbies are actually kind of in line with my career (But I’m trying to make
that not the case and buy a boat). I enjoy keeping up to date with information
security trends, news and technology. I’m also a self-taught acoustic guitar
player (lefty) which means I’m not very good.
