A bit about me

I am a freelance pen-tester, researcher and developer, so if you need something tested, researched or developed please get in touch.

My commercial background is as a software developer but I've always had an interest in security and so around 2005 I started moving away from general software development and more into security related areas. This is a decision I'm very glad I made as this is a great industry to be in with fun work and some amazing people to work with.

I held the Check Team Leader - Applications qualification for three years but let it expire due to lack of use, I may still have the SC clearance which went with it but they won't tell me when it expires for some reason. I hold the GIAC Web Application Pen Testing (GWAPT) certificate and have an expired Assessing Wireless Networks (GAWN) gold certificate and Certified Incident Handler (GCIH) silver. My gold paper was entitled "Programming wireless security" and took a developer through installing various tools to writing an application to automate the collection of a WPA 4 way handshake.

As well as the technical hands on work I also enjoy teaching and have ran a number of courses for beginners who are getting their start in security.

My other passions include climbing, gym sessions and martial arts, especially kobudo where I hold a first dan.
