My Bio

I'm a senior at Countryside High School, currently participating in the Cybersecurity, TV Production, and Computer and System Information Technology programs at Countryside. I'm currently working at Staples in the EasyTech department, my role is to diagnose, repair, and sell computers and printers. For family, I have 3 brothers, and most of my family is a part of Rotary in some form or another. I'm going for my undergraduate in Cybersecurity at Florida Polytechnic after RYE, with the intent to go back for a double major in Organic Chemistry and Aerospace Engineering. I currently hold 16 cybersecurity certificates from industry standard organizations such as CompTIA and Microsoft. By the end of my senior year, I'm going to be attempting the Cisco CCENT, and CCNA certifications to fully qualify as a Systems Administrator. Last year (2017-2018) I competed up to the National level of the Future Business Leaders of America's Computer Problem Solving category, placing 2nd at Nationals, 1st at States, and 1st in the Pinellas District. As of writing this, the team I'm a part of has qualified to go back to FBLA States for Network Design. I'm competing in the CyberFortress challenge again this year, which is sponsored by AFCEA, the Cybersecurity division of the Air Force.
