I'm not afraid to let my geek flag fly.

I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems in 2012. During my college career and for a few years afterward I worked in the telecommunications industry across an array of roles, from drive testing (basically being the Verizon/Sprint "Can you hear me now?" guy) to telecommunication equipment maintenance/management, even to engineering project coordination; and all of it spanning six years. I switched careers in 2015 and now work as an IT Audit Associate, examining the internal operation structures from small companies to large enterprises and analyzing the security surrounding their financial data.

 

In my spare time I enjoy working in audio production through podcasting, volunteering to record audiobooks for the public domain, and helping my local church with video and sound production for our weekly services. I also enjoy learning about new and emerging technology trends and helping others better understand these technologies and how they may be used to enrich our lives through my blog or other platforms.


Technology gives us power, but it does not and cannot tell us how to use that power. Thanks to technology, we can instantly communicate across the world, but it still doesn’t help us know what to say.
