About Me

“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” - Buddha

I have over a decade of experience as a software developer, with a majority of that time specialized in security design and development. I have a core background in Java, .Net, Python, Go, and secure design and development. I am experienced and well practiced in .Net and Java enterprise technologies, web services, agile methodologies, open source, and test-driven development. I have worked with a variety of platforms (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Unix), databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL, MSSQL, Oracle), J2EE Application Servers, software development methodologies, and development environments and tools.

I hold a collection of certifications including Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP), GIAC Security Essentials (GSEC), GIAC Certified Intrusion Analyst (GCIA), GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH), and GIAC Certified Web Application Penetration Tester (GWAPT). I also have my Masters of Computer Science from the University of New Orleans.
