Welcome to my interim website! Teksquisite.com is currently under development, and I’m hoping (fingers crossed) for an early 2020 launch.
I am a self-employed IT consultant/writer/editor/SEO and social media consultant. I have over twenty-five years of combined computing and cybersecurity experience. I’ve worked with higher education, cybersecurity startups, hardware, software, network security, Internet security, open-source, web dev, SEO, content management, dark web research, and social media consulting.
A Little History
I feel as though I have been blogging forever (in one form or another), back in the 90’s I blogged about hackers, hardware, malware, software troubleshooting, and viruses. My writings began to morph between 2000-2009 with the addition of sociological and mental health perspectives. By early 2009, I joined Twitter. I managed to create a tsunami of interest by the security community when I discovered blackhat affiliates and malware.
I’ve always loved research. The dark web was one area that I knew quite well. After discovering an adult site database hack (that I sat on for a bit) in an underground forum in 2015, I was not happy with the results. Aside from the media coverage, there was a band of cybercriminals craftily plotting my demise. Though I occasionally poke around down there — my preference is to farm off any findings to another cybersecurity expert.
Though I’ve mainly worked with cybersecurity startups — my level of knowledge is extensive in the realm of content strategy, social media consulting, SEO, and digital audits. The marketing strategies used for startups is never a one size fits all. The same goes for local area businesses. Every business is unique.
I am currently available for remote contract positions (or projects) and also offer marketing services for Rogue Valley local small businesses—if the fit is right.
