Who am I?

My name (read as: pseu•do•nym) is Austin Dizzy and I'm a security researcher and software engineer, having studied computer science and political science at West Virginia University, where I also currently work in our Information Security and Privacy Office.

I've been doing this computer thing for suprisingly about a decade now, where I've mainly focused my efforts in security research, software engineering, and security awareness.
