Hey everyone!  My name is Heath, but you may know me as "The Cyber Mentor™ ".  I'm currently working in the cybersecurity realm as a business owner and penetration tester, performing security testing ranging from network penetration and web application assessments to social engineering and physical engagements.  I've created my social media presence because 1) I've always had a passion for teaching and 2) the cybersecurity field is growing in demand faster than it can fill jobs.  My goal is to be a mentor for those with any sort of interest in cybersecurity and help grow our community in the process.  If you're interested, you can read more about my journey into cybersecurity here.

When I'm not hacking or teaching, I'm also busy being a husband to my wonderful wife.  We currently parent a ridiculous amount of animals, which you can often catch on the live stream!  I also enjoy video games (mainly Overwatch and anything Vive at the moment), playing the guitar, running, dressing up in the occasional suit, watching sports, and watching stand-up comedy.

I hope you enjoy my teaching!
