My Education

I get it. Nobody likes the guy that wears his accomplishments on his sleeve. This page is more for me. If you want to know why my brain ticks the way it does... there is a lot of reason sitting right here. This site is a dive into my brain and why I solve problems the way I do. If you are really interested, here are some answers to that question. That and all this junk in my trunk makes for a SUPER long and boring resume. I can also use this page to have a quick reference of what I have done and line up the next training. Each SANS course is a $7000 decision so I really need everything out front to make a solid decision. If you are not in to reading this stuff here is a tl;dr:

16 Years in the Army and did a bunch of stuff. Really like computers and security so I got some certs and went to college.

I am LOOOOONG out of the ARMY now and don't really care if anyone knows about what I got to do. This is 16 years worth of training and it shaped me into what I am today. A dedicated, hard worker. With all this, know that I know when to work, and play hard when it is time to play.
