Since completing my undergraduate degree, I have changed trajectory and gone back to doing what I have always loved: messing around with computers. I completed master's degrees in software development and cyber security with distinction. I have become an advocate for privacy and cryptography, and I am an organiser of Cryptoparty Belfast. I attended DEF CON 24 and have attended Chaos Communication Congress two years in a row. I enjoy CTFs. I am currently pursuing my OSCP certification. I write code for fun. I like beer, planes, and once upon a time I was the drummer in a rock band.
