I love breaking things and providing solutions on how to secure them
I have been in the IT industry since 1998, and have spent 18 of those years as a professional software developer. I have always had a hacker mentality and officially made the transition to Cyber Security in 2020.
I obtained my OSCP, OSEP, OSWE, OSED, and OSCE3 certifications from Offensive Security within a year of starting to study.
At Checkmark Cyber I worked as a Lead Red Teamer and Lead Penetration Tester on a vast number of projects, including international big brand clients. I successfully performed a number of blackbox, whitebox, physical access and social engineer simluations against clients.
During my time at Halborn, I was exposed to various Web 3 technologies (smart contracts, blockchain, and DeFI) and was promoted to Lead Offensive Security Engineer within the first three (3) months of starting at the company. I was also tasked with performing penetration testing on web applications and cloud infrastructure. I was also responsible for performing code audits on web and desktop applications, as well as browser extensions. My main role was as a member of the Cosmos auditing team.
I am passionate about hacking and love learning daily. To this end I am always looking at courses or certifications to improve my knowledge and skillset. The more difficult the challenge, the more satisfying it is when the solution is found. I take pride in providing work that is of the highest quality.
I know how to work well in a team, and can operate independently as well. The majority of the work that I am involved with is remote, so I can be disciplined enough to stick to deadlines. In the past I have been employed in various positions where I had to lead a team.
As a leader offensive security I am responsible for:
As a whitebox and blackbox penetration tester I am responsible for:
As the owner of the business I am responsible for:
The business started as an IT Support provider, and later branched out and focused on Software Development. Software developed included Desktop, Server, Web and Mobile Application solutions.
Apart from being a hacker, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors.
