Hello, I’m Jarrod, and I’m passionate about cybersecurity. I currently work as a Penetration Tester at FRSecure, where I specialize in Red Team Engagements, Web Application, and API Pentesting. With over twelve years of experience in the IT field, my journey began as a Web Developer and evolved into a role as a System Administrator. In 2018, I made a pivotal decision to transition into the world of cybersecurity, and I’ve never looked back.
Beyond my professional life, I lead an active and diverse lifestyle:
- Wildlife Advocate: When I’m not immersed in the digital realm, I’m out in nature. I volunteer at a local wildlife center, dedicating my time to rehabilitating owls and other birds of prey. This unique experience allows me to give back to the environment and learn valuable lessons about resilience and adaptability.
- Retro Tech Enthusiast: I have a knack for customizing and modding retro handheld devices. The world of vintage technology fascinates me, and I enjoy breathing new life into these nostalgic gadgets, adding a modern twist to their classic charm.
- Educator and Content Creator: I’m committed to sharing my expertise in pentesting and cybersecurity. In my free time, I create content to educate and empower others in the field. Whether through blog posts, videos, or workshops, I aim to demystify the world of cybersecurity and inspire others to join this dynamic and critical industry.
