I am the primary consultant and founder of Nightside Security, an infosec firm that specializes in penetration testing, vulnerability audits, and network security monitoring with IDS/IPS frameworks like Snort and Bro. I help clients develop resilient, dynamic and scalable security solutions in order to identify, understand, and mitigate threats before they are exploited. I have been working on my own for over two years now, and I have over four years of experience within the IT security industry prior to this. I have extensive experience with server administration, website development and design, and I am proficient in Python (which allows me to write my own pentesting tools should the situation call for them). With regards to lower-level languages, I know C and I am currently teaching myself assembly. I am also skilled in system administration and server configuration, especially within the Unix ecosystem.
