Adam entered the world of hacking way back when he was a wee slip of a lad. Because when you live in a town whose major pastimes are farming and gossip, breaking into a BBS can seem like great fun.
Right up until you get caught.
Which he did.
The BBS owner, having discovered that some kid had brute-forced his passwords for funsies, declined to press charges against Adam, and instead did the next best thing: offered him a job. Under that long-ago sensei’s tutelage, Adam learned the ways of hacking and of reverse engineering, awakening a love for breaking things. Which he does in an instinctual fashion that sometimes blows mind and defies explanation.

It’s a very good thing Adam is a good guy*, because he is adept in assessing and securing Node.js, Ruby on Rails, Django, and PHP web apps, as well as providing expertise on secure application design and performing penetration testing at key project points prior to and after launch.
