Strategicsec Rookies Program

Posted: September 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

Got involved in the past week with Joe McCray’s rookies program over at and enjoying it so far. It means amping up ‘my game.’ But I look forward to that as well. Getting busier and busier and I think the future holds good things.

More to come as time goes on. But thought I would at least mention this. Almost done with my presentation for next weekend at DerbyCon. Looking forward to that as well.


On July 1st, I presented on “Breaking Out of the Echo Chamber” at BSides Cleveland. I had a great time considering it was my first time presenting. I didn’t really like speech class, but I find that I enjoyed my experience overall. A video of the presentation can be found on Adrian Crenshaw’s (irongeek) website. The link is here:
Work has kept me pretty busy, but I am still involved with the IvyTech CCDC team, ISSA, and organized an Intro to Programming class for local area youth focusing on Python and Ruby (slides are located here: ). I plan on doing that one again. I also joined Joe McCray’s Security Rookies. Looking forward to interning with Joe. All this in addition to my every day job of being a Systems Administrator and fighting the good fight for BLUE team.

DerbyCon is coming up again, the last weekend in September, and I got selected to present there as well. I am looking forward to that. I am scheduled to speak at 10AM on Saturday in the Stable Talks. Again, I look forward to it.
