Hi all! 

New kid on the block - recently graduated w Bachelor's in CompSci so I'm definitely willing to learn...if ur all ok with a newbie :)

Currently I work in the cyber security field doing code review for C/C++ and my other project has me doing some Java programming. 

Also, I have some experience w updating user guides/documentation/QA testing and I can send you a link to a write up I did of a security conference for a writing sample.
