About Johnathan

Security-minded executive architect, focusing on the minutiae but always through the lens of the bigger picture. I was formerly in the US military, where I learned how to lead and be led. I hold a Masters in Computer Science and a Doctorate with a dual concentration of Cloud Computing and CyberSecurity. It's all high-speed, low-drag.
