about Me.

Over my career, I have held both internal and consultative roles helping clients and employers reduce risks and improve their security programs. I have led or am leading engagements including penetration testing, vulnerability analysis, security audits and security program development. I hold my CISSP as well as certifications on ISO/IEC 27002 and AWS Certified Solutions Architect.

Currently I lead the US security architecture team for BBVA. My responsibilities include establishing an enterprise security architecture framework as well as designing and developing processes to ensure that proper security architecture is implemented within projects in the US. This includes working with many teams to develop security and governance baselines. Our team is also heavily focused on establishing and improving the governance and security within AWS infrastructures.
