With the rise in cloud technologies utilized in the Industry today, hosting services on the cloud is becoming an industry best standard centered around efficiency and availability. I am currently an Undergraduate Senior Computing Security student who has a passion centered around custom cloud integrations and security analytics. Overall I work with containerized cloud services (AWS/AZURE), web applications (FLASK, MERN, etc.), and analysis/collector tools (Elasticsearch, Kibana, Grafana, etc.). With this in mind, I will continue to strive to learn and follow industry standards centered around securing web/mobile applications and proving them through auditing/testing.


About Me

Currently I am a Senior Undergraduate Computing Security Student with a minor in Public Policy attending Rochester Institute of Technology [RIT]. My interests currently include cloud services, data analytics, packet analysis, security auditing, and custom API integrations. I have been involved in numerous clubs in relation to computing security [RITSEC] and have participated in networking competitions for more exposure [RIT NSIC]. To continue my exposure to new security practices, my brother and I also work on personal projects utilizing our home network as well. My primary goal is to become an expert in the new and rising field of cloud security and to be able to work with multiple different platforms and APIs on a regular basis!
