Splunk ninja with heaps of experience in cyber security, development and data forensics always open for opportunities!


Currently working as a Splunk professional services provider specialising in federal government and secure environments; previously as a cyber security analyst with a federal government department, I have a strong and growing passion for encouraging efficient and secure development lifecycles.

Technical Skills

Plenty of certifications for Splunk (Architect, Consultant, ITSI, Enterprise Security, Power User, Administration etc etc)

I don't believe in listing explicit programming, environment or platform skills as I can pick up anything very quickly. I started working as a developer for several years, then moved into cyber security. During this time I became familiar with a massive scale enterprise environment including the most complex of tooling and workflows. Once I moved to consulting, this experience was great as it let me hop between different tool sets easily as I quickly moved between different environments. At this stage I'm very confident that I can pick up any toolset and drive it efficiently and effectively.

Academic Achievements

2nd Best Overall IT System

- Monash University Industry Experience Project

I'm actually pretty proud of this so I'm going to write about it a bit more.

The task was to create a web system for a client; our client was a branch of the Uniting Care assistance group. It was interesting because the clients were almost exclusively volunteers who have almost no computer experience. Not only that but I was told by management specifically that their willingness to learn will be minimal at best.

But they were confident in Microsoft Word!

With this knowledge, I build a web system (from scratch, as the assignment required) where users were automatically authenticated from their work intranet, and each page was simply a HTML render of a word document. Adding a new page was as simple as dragging and dropping a word document onto the screen and clicking the menu item you wanted to lead to it. Some of the more elite users were given permissions to add and edit the menu items, and access to an inline editor plugin for changing the home page in an easy, drag and drop, click and type interface.

It was the easiest and most usable system I have ever created. Teaching drag and drop was not an easy task, but it ended up being a great tool that I am extremely proud of.
