“Snake. We’re not tools of the government, or anyone else. Fighting was the only thing… the only thing I was good at. But… at least I always fought for what I believed in.” -Grey Fox, Metal Gear Solid
Michael joined ABS in 2017 as an Operations Analyst in our Client Support department after working in retail and the food industry for most of his life. He is currently attending TCC studying Information System Technology with a focus on CyberSecurity. His goal is to learn all he can about Cyber Security and eventually be in a security penetration testing role.
Outside of work, Michael enjoys PC and console gaming, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and DJing. He also enjoys using his professional skills to compete in “capture the flag” hacking challenges. He has also accomplished climbing Old Rag Mountain, a mountain in Shenandoah National Park, which also happens to be Shenandoah’s most dangerous hike (yikes!)
When asked why he chose to bring his talents to ABS, Michael tells us ABS is a breath of fresh air. “I work with a great team, and I never once have felt like just a number.” He tells us that he also appreciates seeing the CEO being involved in the company on a day to day basis.
