I like a challenge...
In everything that I do - I look for that challenge. It drives me. Working in the IT Security industry for 15 years now has given me those challenges on a daily basis. Recently moving in to work with my father to sell cars has also been a challenge. It's new to me - although I've been around it my whole life - I'm really looking forward to learning the business more. I work full time with IBM Security, mainly working on the QRadar Brand of products. I work part time and evenings with my father Hup Clark at Atlantic Euro Cars to sell great vehicles to great people. It's really interesting and I look forward to it every day!

Secure all the things!
I've been with the Q1Labs / IBM team since 2006 and have spent some time in numerous different roles. In the past I was mainly focused of the Security of our products themselves. If there is one thing that isn't accepted is an insecure security product.
My work included regular vulnerability scanning and penetration testing of our systems - and then working closely with our development teams to ensure that issues were prioritized and focused on to ensure the safety of our customers information.

Bachelor of Managment
Since 2005 I have been working through Athabasca University to get my Bachelor of Management degree. I chose the business field to continue my education as I felt one of my greatest strenghts was that of bridging the gap between the technical side and the business side. I am almost complete this program, and have 3 more courses until I obtain my degree.

Bachelor of Computer Science
I did 3 years of the Computer Science degree program at the University of New Brunswick. While attending there I was a part of the co-op program, which introduced my to my love of Computer Security. It led me down the path of concentrating in security rather than just coding.
