Melissa-1003 SQHuman owned by a Sphynx and a Min-Pin, persistently overcaffeinated,  usually found on a patio with laptop and craft beer in hand.

I graduated in 2018 with my BS from Colorado State University, summa cum laude. Now that the fancy piece of wall-art is out of the way, I can focus on the learning I want to do.

By day, I work in desktop support for a 1,200 employee company in northwest Louisiana handling all manner of technical issues. By night, I’m a crime fighting superhero with a cape – wait… no, that’s not right… *ahem* by night I’m  continuing to develop my skillset in systems administration, network engineering, and penetration testing.

I found that the more I learned/developed my professional skills, the more I realized that writing them out, retracing my steps and seeing how I could clean up my method or improve the process made me better.  So, here we are.  The blog is, theoretically, going to be a collection of nifty things I uncover, methods/solutions I’ve implemented, and capture-the-flag/pentesting/ethical hacking walkthroughs and discussions.

Professionally, I’m always open to new opportunities and new connections. FEel free to reach out to me via the contact page, or my LinkedIn.
