Interests

I like to keep active. I primarily love long distance running, weightlifting, salsa dancing and playing basketball. I also like staying up to date on topics in information security, especially by partaking in capture-the-flag style hacking events which allow me to learn about vulnerabilities in a hands-on way. I'm regularly involved with the Portland InfoSec community and I'm highly active on Hack the Box, an online pentesting platform.
