As a child, he was a very curious kid whose family didn't have a lot of money, so he would exploit the 30 day NetZero CDs at the time to get free internet access. So he was hacking at an early age and didn't know it at the time.

He is the founder of KM Cyber Security in addition to teaching for Infosec. He was also the lead author of Chained Exploits: Advanced Hacking Attacks from Start to Finish.
