A full-time forensic investigator working with one of the Big4 firms with substantial experience in regularly conducting digital forensic investigations, data acquisition operations, data recovery and e-discovery processes.

When I'm not doing these things I usually hangout with friends, cook something scrumptious, read fiction or travel.

P.S. I'm a sucker for coffee and ice-cream.
