I’ve worked in cybersecurity since the early 90s as a military officer, trainer, consultant, and leader. I started Alpine Security in 2014 to change the cybersecurity status quo and bring common sense to the industry. I’m currently the CEO of Alpine Security. I have over 25 cybersecurity certifications, am a certified high-performance coach, NLP practitioner, and more. I’ve taught cybersecurity courses to thousands all over the world. I’m a doer, not a talker. I like big talk, personal development, risky activities that require a waiver, Top Gun, Point Break, Nightwish, Kona, volcanoes, Ironman, Topo Chico, travel, and adventure.
