I didn’t go to school for IT, rather art and design. My love of the technology used to create art and music is what lead me to seek out a deeper understanding and respect for the systems that power our internet and world.
I have done it all, from helpdesk to sysadmin and even some poorly written classic ASP pages. My focus is on understanding how things work and to best secure them. I also like to learn how to break into systems and prevent it from happening in the future, or if prevention is not an option, then how do we detect and react to it.
I will continue trying, failing and learning from my mistakes.
