Thank you for visiting!

I started this blog to share my experiences and knowledge about:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Tech
  • Coffee Roasting and Brewing

My journey into cybersecurity has been an obscure one. I was a political science major in university. After a couple of years teaching English in South Korea and returning home, I was struggling to find work in my field. I worked in various jobs to pay the bills and keep food on the table.

I took some advice and started studying for the CompTIA A+ and had an employer that was gracious enough to let me pivot internally to their help desk. I quickly excelled in skills and seniority in different IT roles including systems and network administration and engineering, and finally into my first cybersecurity role as a security engineer and threat hunter.

I am a self-described purple teamer, as I immerse myself in my home lab where I study anything from ethical hacking and detection techniques, networking, coding, DevSecOps, and so much more.

I hope you learn something while you are here. Thank you for reading and thank you for visiting my blog!
