About Me

Information technology is more than a job for me; it is also my greatest passion in life. Over the last five years I have acquired a wide body of expertise perfecting security architecture in one of the largest and most chaotic technology environments on the planet - and I have loved every second of it. I always have a technology related hobby project that keep my skills on the cutting edge - from contributing to open source, to responsibly disclosing security vulnerabilities, to building virtual reality games - feel free to check out the projects (or my blog!) section below for more information.

I've been enamored with understanding how technology works for the better part of two decades. I started a small time web development / web hosting business when I was in middle school (my clients would have been mortified if they knew my age), went on to become the youngest Microsoft Certified IT Professional: Enterprise Architect in my state (at 17), got a Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) certification for fun, then started two profitable technology companies ($250k VC + $100k revenue combined) in college, and finally took a job as a Security Architect at GE after graduation.

My career at GE has been (and still is!) one of the most rewarding times of my life. Not only have I felt driven to a cause - defending our critical industrial infrastructure against cyber attack - but I have also had the opportunity to work on a plethora of different technologies. Some highlights include: creating the current security architecture of GE Public Cloud, creating tons of related cloud application architectures for our internal security services (Qualys, WebInspect, Veracode, IDS), architecting a zero-trust network model for remote sites, creating the architecture for an industrial IoT MSSP, architecting a global Cisco ISE NAC solution, and running our internal rapid prototyping lab for the cybersecurity organization. In that time I've been promoted from a Enterprise Security Architect to Senior Enterprise Security Architect and have taken two executive training classes through GE Crotonville.

I can't talk about myself without also talking about my personal projects - they are the mechanism by which I keep my skills sharp while also experimenting with new technologies. I have a whole section dedicated to these projects (see the left navigation or scroll down), but I'll give a brief overview of the recent ones. I built and open sourced a python-based algorithmic LendingClub trading bot, built a useful AWS Lambda script that notifies you of hard-to-get dinner reservations, and a Predix Industrial Internet app that alerts you to rare Pokemon nearby in Pokemon Go.
