Thanks Jason Jaques for the honor to be on the Colorado = Security podcast this week! I’m impressed with how this community has grown — it’s a great resource for anyone in or wanting to be in infosec in Colorado.
In the podcast we:
- Start with my background and where I’m from
- Talk about my 10 years in the Navy background and that it’s where I got my start in cybersecurity
- Laughed at some funny Navy missile stories, including funny facts like, “Do subs have internet, and where does the poop go?”
- Fun times I had in Germany and Belgium beer festivals and then my time in Afghanistan
- Briefly explained the journey from living on the East Coast to moving to CO
- Discussed my serial entrepreneurship with Cryptotronix, Kelabs, and Advanced Security and talked about each one
- Explained about how Cryptotronix is an embedded security consulting company
- Talked about cryptocurrency and how it works on the blockchain
- Went over that Advanced Security is a hardware security training company (online training like a Twitch screen/live, interactive training)
- Discussed the benefits of online training and that although in person will probably pick back up again, online and remote work will never go away
- Talked about the show Black Sails, highly recommend it!
- Described my role as a mentor with the Engineer in Residence, a local IEEE chapter at CSU for undergrad computer engineering students
- Offered my final thoughts on Colorado = Security
