My parents bought our first home computer when I was 7. I was the first one to figure out how to turn it on. Ever since then, I’ve been the IT guy in our household. Because I grew up in a small town without much to do, I spent lots of time in front of the computer. I was completely self-taught up until college.

During my four years at Texas Tech, I was a member of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity and Texas Tech Army ROTC. I was also a part of the RaiderSec cyber security club until its dissolution in 2013. I also volunteered with the Ted Phea Lubbock Boys & Girls Club and helped raise money for The Ability Experience.

After graduation from Texas Tech, I moved to the DFW area. I currently lead an active lifestyle with my girlfriend, Allison.
