Hi! I'm Luis, I enjoy being challenged everyday with solving real world security and software puzzles. My ultimate goal is to utilize these solutions to help businesses operate more efficiently and secure.

There is a vast amount of information to learn about security, which has sparked some new reading material and projects. When I'm not working on awesome projects, you can try finding me out in the mountains hiking with my pup Nixon or snowboarding.
