About Me
Hi, I'm Jayson!
I'm currently in my Senior year of college, pursuing a BS in Information Technology & Administrative Management, with a specialization in cybersecurity.

I'm really into threat intelligence. As our world spins, cyber threats are becoming stealthier, effective, and persistent. The obscure realm of cybersecurity is a tug-of-war game, with one side often choosing a darker path. 

When I'm not doing research or learning, I like to volunteer my time. Right now, I split this into two groups;

Ocean Location, a youth-powered initiative to bring ocean conservation issues to young audiences. At OL, I manage the entire marketing department, and often write reports, conduct research, and create content for our social media presence. 

Crisis Text Line, a text-based mobile crisis helpline that connects trained counselors with people experiencing a mental health emergency. At CTL, I'm a crisis counselor. I'm trained in risk assessment, coping mechanisms, and compassionate encouragement.
