Kevin has led hundreds of live learning and hacking sessions for many of the world’s most notable companies including HP, Microsoft, Accenture, and Qualcomm. He is also a developer by trade, security engineer by fate, and trainer at heart.

He is passionate about security and embraces novel, engaging training techniques like hands-on simulation to make security real but approachable. In his words:

Watching the cyber range demystify what participants thought to be hacker magic tricks never gets old!  While it isn’t designed to turn players into hackers, it gets them attack-focused. Many have that a-ha moment when they realize that their own projects might have the same types of vulnerabilities they just enjoyed finding in our cyber range.  This unique insight would have helped correct my own flawed assumptions much sooner

Fun Fact: Kevin is a stand-up comedian in his spare time.
