I have served in the U.S. military and as a government contractor for twenty years. I have also worked in several technology companies in both data security and financial analysis.
I recently completed a Master's Degree in Cybersecurity at Utica College with a focus on Cyber Policy and Intelligence, with a 3.94 GPA. As part of my Master's degree program, I wrote a peer-reviewed capstone, which was published by ProQuest, titled: Artificial Intelligence Warfare Through The Integration of Cyber, Financial and Kinetic Warfare.
I studied classical guitar for many years, and later started playing lute, baroque guitar, theorbo, and 19th-century guitar. I perform with several early music groups in New York and play in some early music festivals in the U.S.
Also, I have a passion for martial arts. In particular Okinawan Karate. I lived in Japan for 4 years and I studied with a great Master in Okinawa. Currently, I have a 6th degree black belt and Renshi (senior teacher license).
