About David Cafaro

So you want to know more about me! … Why?

Since you are determined here goes…

I’m a computer geek at the core. I had my first real experience with computers in middle school where I soon had the teacher asking me how to do things and referring students to me to answer questions and fix problems. At that point I was hooked. Since then I managed to get my BS in Computer Engineering and my MS in Computer Science.  I have worked in several technology fields including Telecommunications, System Administration, Networking, Security, Programming, and the Financial Industry. I’m presently practicing my skills as a Hunt Team Lead and Manager with a focus on infrastructure and the cloud.

My current interests include: Enjoying time with and traveling with my Wife and Sons, Computer and Network Security, Gadgets, All things Open Source (focus on Linux), Trucks/Cars (My greasy hands hobby), Reading (which I’ve been slacking on lately), and most recently Fencing.

Some highlights in my tech life:

Projects I’m currently working on:

My day job is leading an Information Security Office in a large company.
