Matt has been an amateur security enthusiast since childhood and was a regular 2600 attendee in high school. After graduating The University of Kansas with a B.S. in Computer Science, Matt spent 6 years as an IT Consultant to local businesses in Kansas City. In 2013, he combined his knowledge of business systems and love for security to become a penetration tester for TrustFoundry. Since then, he has hacked on hundreds of systems. He’s given talks at security events such as SecKC and TriKC. He also had the privilege to present a tool of his own design at BlackHat USA 2015 and 2017. When he’s not hacking, you can find Matt fishing with family, traveling with his wife, or killing plants in his garden.
