Welcome to my blog! I’m going to be using this blog as a way to connect both my lifelong passion of writing and my budding love of technology. I have always loved technology. From the moment I was a young girl who learned how to connect to the internet via a dial-up connection all the way up until now, tech has been something I have always had an interest in. When I was younger, however, I wanted to be an author. I used to write so many stories and articles on various things I was interested in. Now, I’m joining them together. My love for technology and learning more about it, and my love for writing and expressing myself through the written word. And that is why you have Steph&Sec, a blog where you can watch me figure all of this stuff out, and maybe learn a thing or two along the way.
About my background: I have been working in the tech industry for a little over six years. I have a pretty diverse background at this point: worked in web hosting/server management for two years, worked in help desk for a year, currently working in security. My ultimate goal? To have a successful career in the Cyber Security sector. I will be documenting my attempts at achieving this goal, and listing what I am doing in order to get to where I want to be.
I am currently working on completing my Bachelor’s, being a delegate for Security Field Day 2, being a lead for the WISP DEFCON Scholars, chapter Lead for WoSEC Houston, co-hosting a weekly podcast and speaking at various conferences:
Security panelist at tabGeeks 2019.
Speaker at Layer 8 Conference 2019 in the Mental Health Hackers Village.
In my spare time, I like to read up on pop culture, watch trash TV, hang out with friends and loved ones, and talk tech with friends. I also love to travel, and hope to one day adopt a dog.
