I am a thinker who can focus on a problem, gather information and knowledge to achieve a creative and robust solution.
Hello, my name is Jon.
I am a maker and a breaker. As far back as I can remember, I have had an insatiable desire to understand how things work. As a kid with limited access to the internet, this meant taking things apart and observing how they may work. Today this means staying up far too late in the evening to research Software and hardware techniques and standards related to information security. I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security Engineering at Iowa State University. The courses I have enjoyed most while studying are Cyber Security, Digital Logic, and Object-oriented Programming.
I have a great passion for information security and I am very excited to realize this passion in a professional capacity. One of my career goals is to work with a red or purple team, I am specificaly interested in network attacks, physcial security, and scoial engineering.
