Hi. I’m Stephen.
Welcome to my website.

The purpose of this site is to share my IT journey, as well as to help others with theirs. I also want to give some examples of what I have learned/worked on in my time in the field, such as projects, homelab ideas and just things i enjoy doing. You can contact me on my socials through the links below. Let’s learn together!

About Me

A few years after enrolling the Cyber Security program at my local college I started my career in IT and never looked back. My first job was installing physical networks and security systems, which is how I learned networking from Layer 1.

Shortly after I landed a position in helpdesk for a local city govt. where I learned how to troubleshoot issues and work in a fast paced environment.

From there I moved up to Systems Administrator and then Sr. I then broke into the world of Security after getting a job as Lead information Security Engineer and boy has it been amazing. I’ve learned how to “think like a manager” and apply risk management concepts in the real world.

I’m proud to have multiple Industry certifications such as CISSP, Security+, Network+ and A+ and look to obtain more in the coming years.
