Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Works as a security consultant and blogger at Solutionary, an information security company.
Grew up with his Solutionary co-worker Brent White; the two loved to break things and then try to re-engineer them.
Says there are several motivations behind hacker culture, whether it be approaching security from a malicious place, wanting to learn how things work, or wanting to help people.
For him, hacking holds his interest because he’s constantly trying to learn more about how things work and to educate others on the same.
Says that if you approach security research as just another job, and you don’t have a passion for it, you’re not going to be invested enough to be good at it.
Because his job is also his hobby and his passion, he makes sure to set aside time to decompress so that he doesn’t face burnout.
Advises students to question the curriculum when they’re in college; he looked at the classes that were out there and built himself a unique schedule based on his interests.
Says that everyone experiences self-doubt when they’re figuring out what they want to do, but once you find your niche, you find your confidence.
