31337 80X / BSidesSTL

3N|GmA is a lifelong security addict/enthusiast who began his journey back in the days of AOL 2.0/2.5, LuciferX, Methodus Toolz, Lethal Fragment, sub7, etc. He was instantly “Addicted from the start and it wasn’t endin’ soon”. 3N|GmA developed a passion for penetration testing, red teaming, and learning how to make things work; especially things that were never designed to work. Fast forward through times better left undocumented; and as a result, he became a full time red team lead, penetration tester, co-founder of BSidesSTL, and lock pick village guy thanks to hard work, dedication, and our wonderful community.
