About Me

Adrian Buford

Chicago, IL.

In a land not so far away, sits, somebody. In Chicago, thrives, the dude, teh legend. The techie, geeky, yet swagful infosec-pc-network-crypto-web/graphic design, automotive tech, engineer {yep! certified in that also} expert. On a serious note. I have made information security, technology, engineering & computing my life for over 16 years and have seen everything. Basic to advanced and persistent.

I code. I host...on my servers. I design. I fabricate. I secure. I educate. I upgrade. I install. I consult. I network you. I'm no swiss-army knife... but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me key player where ever I am needed. I don't take on any client I cannot fully support. I don't offer to do any job I cannot complete.

I fix stuff and people.

Morally and semi-professionally obligated to protecting our national infrastructure.
