Kristian Hermansen

I am an occasional security dude aged 0x1A. I got into "hacking" in my early teen years by messing around with video game cheats. I extended that interest into software cracking on Windows and network security. Things just seemed to balloon out from there. I started work in the Fortune 500 at seventeen years old, right out of high school. I have since worked for IBM, Cisco Systems, EMC, and others. Now I enjoy riding bicycles long distances, hiking, and playing music. However, I also need to fill my time outside of work with intellectual stimulation and I get that done by breaking systems. My day job involves playing defense. LINKS: * Professional Info
