Everything and Nothing

About Me


I am a doctoral student at Marymount University in Cybersecurity. My dissertation chair is Dr. Michelle Liu. I passed my dissertation proposal exam in late May 2021. My dissertation research is focused on usable security and security awareness training.

I earned an MS in Computer Science from Howard University. My capstone project was focused on resilient peer-to-peer search. I also earned BS in Computer Information Science from Benedict College.I completed the SANS Institute Cybersecurity Engineering Core certification path, completing it in 2019, just prior to my current academic program.

I have served in the past as an adjunct faculty member in the Business School at George Mason University (and hope to in the future) and am still currently doing so in the Information and Engineering Technologies Division at Northern Virginia Community College.

I also have about 20 years of public-sector industry experience in technical, project management and program management roles.I have a number of cybersecurity related certifications, including the CISSP, GCIH, and GCIA – for which I wrote a still as yet unfinished paper and Wi-Fi security tool, that I hope to come back to someday.
