I have over 20 years of IT/Cybersecurity experience in various sectors such as military/government, insurance, digital security, banking, and energy. I am a 22-year veteran of the US Army as both an enlisted soldier and officer. I have served in both combat arms (Armor & Cavalry) and as an IT/Cyber officer with multiple tours of duty in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other foreign destinations. During my service, I received numerous awards and decorations including the Defense Meritorious Service Medal and the Bronze Star. I enjoy speaking and teaching in areas such as Cybersecurity and the compliance impact of laws and regulatory guidance on businesses. I am currently engaged to speak at several upcoming cybersecurity conferences in the next few months and have been working to complete several articles for publication.
