About

Nice to meet you all! Here's a little about me.
I'd be honored to help you in your mentoring journey. Whether it's security topics or resume writing, I can help you achieve your success.

As a mentor, I can help you with:

-> Understanding Information Security: With five years of experience in roles such as information security, administration, and engineering, I can guide you through the intricacies of securing information in the digital age.

-> Mastering Security Technologies: I have hands-on experience with various security technologies like firewalls, IDS/IPS, endpoint security, and I'm always up-to-date with the latest advancements. Together, we can explore these tools and learn how to implement them effectively.

-> Systems Administration: I'm proficient in Windows and Linux systems and have thorough knowledge of Active Directory. If you're interested in understanding the mechanics behind these systems, I can help you navigate them with ease.

-> Security Projects and Team Engagements: With a history of spearheading high-level security projects and participating in red and blue team engagements, I can provide insights into managing projects and working collaboratively within a cybersecurity context.

-> Technical Proficiency: I have experience with tools such as DNS/Host enumeration, Burp Suite, ZAP, NMAP, Metasploit, and many others. I can guide you in learning how to use these tools effectively and can even suggest various exercises to help you understand them better.

-> Pentesting Methodology and Tools: My experience with pentesting methodologies and tools, lateral movement, and incident response/forensics can be invaluable for students wanting to dive deep into the world of ethical hacking.

-> Cloud Technologies: I'm well-versed in AWS/Azure/O365/M365, which are vital for today's tech-driven businesses. If you are interested in expanding your skills into the cloud, I can help you with that.

-> Communication Skills: I believe that good communication is just as important as technical knowledge. Having presented briefings on information technology topics to both technical and non-technical audiences, I can help you enhance your presentation and interpersonal skills.

-> Incident Response: I can assist you in understanding the critical aspect of incident response in cybersecurity. My hands-on experience in report writing, conducting tabletop exercises, and utilizing EDR tools, as well as my expertise in email analysis and SIEM/SOAR, will be invaluable as you learn to make your Incident Response processes more efficient and accurate. Together, we can explore threat hunting tools and techniques, enabling you to discover the entry points of an attacker and determine root cause analysis, thereby enriching your skill set and competence in handling cybersecurity incidents.

In addition to providing guidance on these topics, I will be more than happy to share personal insights from my career journey. My self-motivation, thoroughness, and integrity have been key to my success, and I am eager to share these values with you. I believe that every challenge is an opportunity to learn and grow, and as your mentor, I am committed to fostering a supportive and challenging environment that promotes your growth and development in the field of computer science. I hope you'll consider my teaching services to suit your needs!

I recently had the privilege of seeking guidance from Patrick on Resume & LinkedIn preparation. From the beginning, I was genuinely impressed with their depth of knowledge in cyber security and how to present oneself in the professional domain effectively. Patrick reviewed my resume and LinkedIn profile, offering invaluable suggestions that elevated my presence in the job market. Their keen eye for detail and vast experience in the cybersecurity domain allowed me to highlight key accomplishments and skills that I might have otherwise overlooked. Moreover, their approach is holistic. Beyond just reviewing the content, Patrick offered advice on formatting, keyword optimization, and the art of storytelling, ensuring my resume and LinkedIn contained the correct information and resonated with potential employers and connections.
