What is something you are passionate about most people wouldn't know?

Besides the usual suspects like family and learning new things, I'm really into computer security and Linux. I've been tinkering with electronics and guitars for years, too. It's been a journey, from working as a System/Network Administrator to my recent role as a Sr. IT Security Engineer. Each job has fueled my passion in different ways, whether it's setting up security measures or diving into the world of Linux and Ansible. It's been an exciting ride, and I'm always eager to share my knowledge with others!
