Network and Systems Assistant
I was and raised in Dublin, GA then moved to Warner Robins, GA in 2015. Ever since I was a child, I showed a love for computers and technology in figuring out how they worked and what could be done with them. This helped my decision into going for this field in college and where I enjoyed part of my time in the cybersecurity club experimenting and entering challenges involving several areas of computers. I still love to research and test out new technologies in my free time along with other activities. If I had to choose my two favorite areas of technology, I would have to choose networking and cybersecurity. Networking seems to come naturally to me while cybersecurity catches my interest with the best ways to keep a business along with my home secure. When not geeking out on tech, I love to read multiple genres of books and to game.
