I just wanted to let you both know that after working in Los Angeles for a small Ransomware prevention startup business for 3 months I am now leaving and have accepted a job offer from Rapid7 to be a technical support engineer. Rapid7 is a big company that specializes in cyber-security with products like Metasploit, Nexpose and InsightIDR. The company also told me that after a year and a half they will transition my role to the red team for pen testing which is what I have always wanted to do.

I wanted to give you both an update just to show you how far I have come and thank you again for the role you played in helping me get to this point. The interview questions they asked me were mostly OSI model / networking and Linux command line, most of which i remembered from your classes. I hope you are both doing well.
