About Dave

I am a professional Computer Engineer, recently retired with more free time on my hands than I know what to do with. I spent twenty years active duty service in the US Army in the Intelligence field as a Korean linguist. I have almost forty years' experience reading, writing and speaking in Korean. I am not a native speaker but have the background to be able to teach basic Korean language skills. I have a background in Computer engineering, software and hardware. I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems and for the past 10 years I have been involved in Computer Network security supporting Army and Air Force projects.

In the Army, I taught entry level Korean linguists their jobs for 10 years. This involved hands on instruction to include platform instruction involving lectures, test administration and how to use the hardware required for the job. I was involved in creating lesson plans, tests and computer-based training sessions. I was also the Battalion language Non Commissioned Officer (NCO) in charge of maintaining language study material the language laboratory and administrating the language proficiency testing program.

I have demonstrated competency in implementing security programs that promote awareness, decrease risk, and enhance the overall safety of the customer’s IT infrastructure. I am adept at installing, configuring, managing and using various Information Assurance related hardware/software such as; IDS/IPS, Firewalls, Vulnerability Assessment tools and scanners, Servers, Workstations and networking equipment, etc. I have hands-on experience monitoring and validating risks, vulnerability, threat assessments, and ensuring that any network configuration changes were properly managed. I insured the survivability of military computer systems and networks against attacks aimed at disrupting services and gaining unauthorized access.
