My Role

I am currently a senior malware analyst and reverse engineer in the Threat Research Group of LogRhythm Labs in Boulder, CO. In my role, I reverse engineer malware and develop malware analysis capabilities for LogRhythm labs.

My Story

My passion for technology began at the age of four when my father, employed by IBM, brought home our first computer and I began programming in BASIC. I always wanted to pursue the field of forensics, but it was many years before I was able to make my way into the security industry.

I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. After graduating, I worked at IBM as a support desk operator, after which I spent the next few years in various system and network administrator roles. I went on to serve as a space surveillance analyst for RABA Technologies (now CSRA)—contracted by Air Force Space Command. I continued my security career overseas in the United Arab Emirates and upon returning to the U.S, worked for the National Security Agency (NSA).

After leaving the NSA, I spent three years as a forensic analyst and reverse engineer for the Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3), performing system and malware examinations. I supported intrusions investigations for the Department of Defense (DoD) and FBI, specifically supporting investigations that typically involved Nation state actors attempting to exfiltrate defense data. In 2016, I left the DoD and made my way to LogRhythm to aid in the fight against cybercrime.
