About

I am currently a fourth year student studying DFIR. At University, I am a member of the security society and I started taking part in CTF challenges in first year. My interests are mainly in Forensics, Cyber Security, Open Source Software and Programming. In my spare time, I have started to dabble in reverse engineering and Malware research. I finally went to my first tech conference in 2018 and have since attended many more.

Background:

As a kid, I liked computers and out of curiosity, often experimented, making them do things they weren’t meant to. In 2014 I turned ‘professional’ and started working as a computer repair engineer which led to a SRE role at a small MSP. During this early time I was lucky enough to have some amazing mentors with huge experience and generosity with their time. Since starting uni (2018), I have completed internships every year including a forensics research project at a university, a year long placement doing Security Engineering at a Fortune 100 company and a summer internship in Incident Response at a well known Cyber Security startup.

This Blog:

The main topics I want to cover in my blog are as follows:

DFIR research, sharing analysis tools & techniques and write-ups of interesting artifacts.

Tutorials covering topics relating to my interests and education in Computing, security and forensics.

I would also like to write up solutions to CTF challenges.

Contact and Social Media:

I am currently not providing a direct means to contact me such as an email address or contact form but you can reach out to me on Social Media.

Twitter: You can find me on Twitter for low volume posts with blog updates, and retweets of anything I find interesting.

Github: As a student I get unlimited private repos which is mainly how I use GitHub. I hope to Open Source a couple of personal projects soon though.
