I earned my MS in Cybersecurity and Computer Forensics at Utica College. That may seem like a complete departure, but what it taught me was to be more analytical, more focused on the task and made me a much better researcher and writer.

I tied the two industries together by writing my Thesis on The Malicious and Forensic Uses of Adobe Software. I then converted my Word document into a 6×9 paperback book using that very same Adobe software.
