I’m hands on with Microsoft technologies. My duties nowadays include Microsoft Cloud security; Microsoft Entra ID, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, Microsoft Defender XDR, PowerShell scripting, authoring Kusto queries and learning something new all the time. I’ve been focusing all my efforts on Microsoft Azure full time since 2019 and added Microsoft 365 knowledge along the way.

I have multiple Azure and Microsoft 365 certifications that you check out from Microsoft Learn and MITRE ATT&CK certifications listed at Accredible.

This blog is about me contributing to the security community while I’m still trying out and learning new stuff as an eternal learner that I am.
