Welcome to my personal landing page! Here you'll find a brief summary of my professional background.

Over 2017, I earned a CompTIA Security+ certification and became a US citizen, so now I have a dual citizenship (Italy and US).

In the meantime, I also earned two Associate's Degrees with distinction from Stark State College:

-Cyber Security & Computer Forensics Technology (January 2017).

-Computer Network Administration & Security Technology, UNIX/Linux Database Administration major (May 2017).

I'm seamlessly learning and I love facing new challenges.

As of now, I'm studying for the OSCP certification (Offensive Security Certified Professional) and my exam is coming up over the next weeks.

I recently switched to offensive security, realizing a dream I've been working for over my last years. I could finally become a professional penetration tester/incident responder/malware hunter and I hope I can keep growing over next years.

I'm totally uninterested in any other career paths, as this is what I earned two degrees for, and I'm on a mission to make computer systems more secure.
