I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago where I became a huge fan of the Chicago comedy and music scene. Majority of my formative years were spent at local comedy clubs or punk shows. I got into ethical hacking as a young teenager after watching the movie Wargames. To the dismay of my parents I destroyed a fair share of our family computers, which is also how I learned to build and fix systems. I used that background to start my career as a professional ethical hacker and social engineer!
