My Story

As a kid, I had always been fascinated with technology and started learning computer progamming at very young age (Pascal Anyone?). This led me to my first job as Visual Basics developer in 2001, however, I soon realized my real interest was in computer networks. This is where I started my long career in Network and Systems Engineering where I held many roles, including managing large teams of talented Network and Systems Engineers.

In 2010, I found my true calling in cybersecurity and started as a Principal Consultant in Risk and Compliance at McAfee. My primarily focus included the design and implementation of Security Operations Center, leading Tabletop exercises, and conducting gap analysis.

I’ve consulted number of Fortune 500 companies in Canada, United States and Europe. In my professional journey, I worked with many industry leaders, including LogRhythm, Intel Corp., McAfee, Tenable, Microsoft, IBM, Siemens.
