Because we're damned if we do, and we're damned if we don't!

New image

A little over a month back I spoke to Marisa about the InfoSec Mentor program. At the time I thought it was a great chance to really help people in the industry to learn from people more experienced or knowledgeable. With that said, I obviously thought there’s no way I’m smart enough to be a mentor. As such I threw my name into the hat to be a mentee. I’ve only been in the industry for a little over 2 years after all…. I wouldn’t dare claim to be anything more than somebody who tries, and sometimes succeeds! But only sometimes 😛

Flash forward to a month later and the selections are made for mentors and mentees…. so, drum roll please….. Who did I get partnered with….. None other than Jayson E. Street (incase you don’t know him… here is a picture). How ironic… especially considering my comments on Twitter when I made my application. Still, Jayson is a friend and a great guy. So I’m sure this will work out great.

So, to my first steps as a mentee…. time to change my image. It needed an update, the fat English guy look wasn’t working for me anyway. So here it is. The new mentee look…

The journey has only just begun…. there are many choices still to be made, and I’m sure Jayson will guide me through them. The hard ones however, I’ll have to make myself….

Hopefully I’ll have made the choice before DefCon rolls around!
