What do you hope to get from this meetup?

I am looking to hone my skills, teach others, and share knowledge.

How did you find us?


What topics related to IT security are you most interested in and why?

Wireless Security, Penetration Testing, Exploit Research, Encryption Cracking, Vulnerability Assessment, Compliance Testing. These are services clients often ask me to perform.

To get an idea of people's technical background and core strengths, on a scale from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest), please list and rate your top 5 technical skills. (ie Exploit Research - 9, Secure App Programming - 8, Firewall Hacking - 8, etc.)

Penetration Testing - 8, Vulnerability Assessment - 9, Compliance Auditing - 7, Secure Application Programming (OWASP style) - 7, Mobile and Cloud Security - 7. I would say technically I am a humble 7 overall, I know a good bit but can always learn more and that is why I am here, to learn and share knowledge with others.

Do you own a laptop to participate in our hacker lab sessions? Also would you be interested in teaching an ethical hacking topic or skill set at our events? If so which specific topics or skill sets would you be interested in teaching?

Yes I own a laptop, run VMware, Kali Linux and a few OSes to test exploits against. Yes I host events for this group and would be glad to teach things like penetration testing, ethical hacking, application security, website security, OWASP standards, exploit research, mobile and cloud security, etc.


I am computer security professional, researcher and inventor by trade. Companies hire me to conduct risk assessments, vulnerability scans, penetration tests & compliance audits against their IT networks. I enjoy learning, teaching, and having fun!
