About Me

I am currently a Senior Security Specialist at AppRiver, LLC. My team is responsible for global network deployments and manages the SecureSurf global DNS infrastructure and SecureTide global spam & virus filtering infrastructure as well as all internal applications. They also manage security operations for the entire company. I hold a CISSP certification. I am well-versed in ethical hacking and penetration testing techniques and has been involved in technology for more than 20 years.

I have presented at NolaCon, ITEN WIRED, BSides Las Vegas, BSides Atlanta, CircleCityCon, DEF CON, DerbyCon (2017) and several smaller conferences. I regularly attends national security conferences and am passionate about conveying the importance of developing, implementing and maintaining security policies for organizations. My talks convey unique and practical techniques that help attendees harden their security in practical and easy-to-deploy ways.

I am a senior staff member with BSides Las Vegas, a member of the ITEN WIRED Planning Committee and the president of the Florida Panhandle (ISC)2 Chapter. When not at the computer, I can be found working out, playing guitar, traveling or just relaxing with an adult beverage.
