About Adam

I'm a former Marine intelligence analyst who took a while to find my way through life after the Marine Corps. During the time I earned my degree and started post graduate work, I held various jobs in government contracting before I went to work as a cyber security consultant in a small business.

I've experienced the pains of not knowing what I want to do, how to get there or what to do next. I contemplated moving, different jobs fields, and struggled over all to find my place. Being married, I did have responsibilities other than my own goals and desires. But one thing I have found to be the rock of my being is my the ability to move forward; which I attribute to my Marine Corps training and combat experience.

I've informally mentored a handful of veterans over the years and would like to continue contributing to the community that has helped me. I have also started a business and partner in others, something that has been very rewarding.
