Started out learning Python from hackers in an IRC channel in middle school. This quickly sparked the interest of my young self into all levels of programming. Following that I went into building and managing Linux servers with an individual from the same IRC channel. After that I started learning everything that I could get my hands on ranging from hardware, software development, wifi cracking. I headed into a programming focused path but my interest and passion remained in infosec. Subsequently I realized I had spent all my energy and needed time away from the tech industry despite the fact that I never discontinued researching the latest trends and learning new skills. Today I am back into the infosec and tech industry at full force with more drive than ever. This was thanks to allowing myself dive back into the world of CTFs and threat bounty programs.
