I have a deep love for all things technology-related! My main areas have been networking, IdP management, scripting, and security planning. I've continued to grow my career in technology continually by staying on my toes, learning new skills, and being willing to help out where I can. The only thing better than tackling a challenging problem is helping somebody.
