About Me

Hello, and thanks for stopping by my little slice of the web.

 

I work in healthcare cybersecurity, as a security analyst.  I am passionate about protection and driven by a desire to pursue opportunities for improving cybersecurity in the healthcare industry without sacrificing the user experience. I believe that information security and GRC should never get in the way of patient care, should never be an industry unto itself; it should support and defend, complement and reinforce, the medical field.   I work with Linux, Unix, AS/400, Windows and Apple.  I am constantly working to improve awareness of information security.  I have an AAS in Information Technology and am pursuing a Bachelors degree at Western Governors University in CyberSecurity and Information Assurance.

 

Other than the fact that I am married to an extraordinary woman, and have a great son and daughter-in-law, there a few more things about me that may or may not interest the reader.  I am an avid martial artist, a veteran of the U.S. Army, love sailing, backpacking, and video games.  Enjoy collecting real books, but am usually reading on the Kindle.  Oh yes, I love Harley-Davidson’s.  I am a former Harley mechanic and spent a year and a half at the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute.  My current ride is a 2015 FLD Switchback.  I am pursuing membership (prospecting) with Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club, our mission statement: To disciple men to have a daily Word and prayer time and to support the 1% world in prayer.  We take the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the world of outlaw bikers.

 

Last, but by no means least, I am preparing for ordination as an Orthodox-Catholic priest under Episcopal supervision.  Eventually I plan to establish a mission in my community, with the goal of offering pastoral services to those who are unchurched or unable to attend church.  I have a particular desire to reach out and help the elderly who are isolated in senior homes and nursing facilities, as well as share the particulars of the Orthodox-Catholic faith with those around me.
