About Me

I am currently a Systems Engineer at Fortinet in Charlotte, NC. In my role, I assist customers overcome pain points by designing network and security solutions to meet their requirements and needs. These solutions leverage next-generation firewalls (NGFW), software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) and endpoint access, control, protection and response.

I was previously a network engineer for a decade before moving into security running the security team for a university and later as a Senior Information Security Engineer. I’ve been fortunate that I’m now able to be a Systems Engineer again as I work with customers to design the optimal cybersecurity solution for them.

I have a life-long passion for learning and enjoy self-studying on cloud and security topics. I use my posts to challenge myself to understand material better as I share that with others.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing in the backyard with my daughter and dog and exploring Charlotte’s many offerings with my family.
