I earned my Master of Science in Computer Science with an emphasis on Systems Security and Information Assurance at the University of Illinois Springfield, finishing in May, 2013!
The University of Illinois Springfield was designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE) for academic years 2009 through 2014, and has been recertified as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE/IAE) through academic year 2020!
I have worked with computers in various ways since the early 1980s, and enjoy learning about new technology as well as new uses for existing technology.
I have progressed through various computer operating systems starting with TRS-DOS and CP/M, through MS-DOS and DR-DOS, OS/2 and Windows. I currently use a mix of OSX and linux for my personal computing needs.
I have been using a MacBook Pro for academic work and web design since 2008.
