Hello everyone, I am the founder and president of SVCSA. I am a current CS student at Georgia Tech who is very passionate about cybersecurity. When I was 14, I completed a Coursera certification on Software Security, where I have been invited to become one of their mentors and stayed ever since. At 15, I completed the OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional) certification, a renowned industry certification in Cybersecurity. I later moved on to compete in CTFs, where I have won 1st place in the Mitre CTF, a team event, as a single-contestant team, 1st place in the Lockheed Martin Cyber Grand Challenge, an individual competition, as a freshman in college, and various places in other competitions with the Georgia Tech school team. I'm currently learning malware analysis through research at the CyFi lab.
As I haven't been able to find many exceptional CTFers during my high school years, I hope to help others in high school into the rapidly-growing field of cybersecurity with SVCSAcademy.
My CTF specialties are web exploitation and reverse engineering, though I am a decent jack-of-all-trades.

Hi everyone, I'm lecturing with Gavin this summer. I'm a Georgia Tech undergraduate studying Computer Science and researching network security.
I got hooked on CTFs in middle school and eventually was the captain of a Cyber-Defense team in high-school. I was lucky to be able to get involved so early on, and security has shaped my career for over eight years. I'm passionate about abstractions, teaching, and solving fun computational problems. I am a villain on the Palmetto Cyber-Defense Competition Red Team, and last summer interned on the New Relic Security team. In my spare time, I hunt bug bounties and play guitar.
