This section contains technical documentation, notes, cheat sheets, and other content I've created. Earlier work includes Cisco and other networking-related material, while more recent (and future) content is generally focused on Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR). You’ll also find supplemental material relating to various 13Cubed YouTube episodes.
What is 13Cubed?
13Cubed started as a side project and was later developed into a full-fledged company. Most will recognize 13Cubed from the YouTube channel of the same name, which produces a wide range of content covering Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR), as well as other security-related topics. The company also provides consulting services, and occasionally develops software distributed under the brand.
What is your background?
I received my first computer in 1984 at age seven and never looked back. I started a computer company (service, networking, consulting, and training) in 1996 shortly after I graduated from high school and sold it 10 years later in 2006. I then spent nine years at a state college in Georgia. While there, I served as Network Support Specialist, Information Security Officer (ISO), and later, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). Following that, I served six years as CISO for a large organization in the aerospace industry where I led the information security team and had the privilege of working with an incredibly talented group of security professionals with expertise in digital forensics, incident response, and pen testing. In January of 2021, I joined Microsoft as a Senior Digital Forensics Consultant.
I've worked in Information Technology for 28 years, 16 of which specifically in Information Security. More recently, I have focused on digital forensics and was an instructor for the SANS Institute where I taught digital forensics curriculum. I have a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity and numerous industry certifications including CISSP, CCNP Routing & Switching, CCNP Security, GCFE, GCFA, GNFA, and GREM.
