I love adding skills, knowledge, tools, and experience to my portfolio. This guides me in most of my work and drives me to push harder to learn everything I possibly can from any experience I have.
I am particularly interested in adding certificates to my name to show what I have accomplished.
I am proud to say that I have obtained my Certified Ethical Hacker, CompTIA A+, Security+ and Network + certification, an MCPS from Microsoft, and my Digital Forensic Examiner Certification to name just a few.
I currently completed my time as a student at Edmonds Community College studying Digital Forensics and Information Security. I enjoy learning and am proud to continue adding certificates and to have added two degrees to my resume. I aspire to work in the cyber security industry.
At Edmonds Community College I learned how to be a proper Forensic Analyst and security expert and had some truly great teachers with many dozens of years of experience between them. They own and operate two security companies and are subject experts on cyberterrorism and often teach for government agencies around the country. Along the way I obtained my Certified Ethical Hacker Certifications, among others. Digital forensics can be defined as “…the process of uncovering and interpreting electronic data.
The goal of the process is to preserve any evidence in its most original form while performing a structured investigation by collecting, identifying, and validating the digital information for the purpose of reconstructing past events. The context is most often for usage of data in a court of law, though digital forensics can be used in other instances.” I was first interested in this several years ago after watching a TED talk.
I began talking to some of my technological friends and was told that Edmonds Community College had one of the best programs in the area. After taking my first course I knew that I wanted to pursue this as a future career.
As a former Geek Squad agent, I have experience with a variety of personal technology. We were trained to help our clients with any type of technology that they brought to us to the best of our abilities. We also had to deal with all types of people and learned excellent customer service skills quite quickly. As a BluZebra engineer and Customer Support Specialist/Enterprise Security Specialist at Evergreen Health, I learnt about supporting Enterprise level software and hardware in diverse environments including the medical field. I continue to strive to learn and grow from every oppurtunity I am given.
During my free time I love playing my guitar and piano. I also enjoy all manner of nerdy things including but not limited to: Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Superheroes.
In addition, I enjoy some geeky technical things in my downtime such as taking apart and tinkering with different types of hardware, playing in my home cyber security lab that I setup, and (has most cybersecurity people do) enjoy locksport. I would love to continue learning and increasing my experience level. If you are interested in hearing more about me or have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
