Information security leader with 10 years of progressive IT experience helping small to medium size businesses improve their security posture.


I have worked both technical and managerial security roles. Currently, I specialize in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC), which focuses around achieving alignment between security and business objectives. I've helped companies to design and implement security controls and frameworks compliant with industry standards such as ISO 27001 and SOC 2, and I've helped companies to achieve compliance with government regulations such as GDPR and CCPA.


While my day to day career is focused in GRC, I also enjoy the technical side of security as well and I dedicate a lot of time outside of work to tinkering with security tools and learning new tech for fun. Security is a lifelong passion of mine so I'll be using a lot of my free time this year to study offensive security (CTFs, certs, coding and scripting, etc). Never stop learning! 🛡️
