Cybersecurity and IT Risk Management Consultant
Jeff moved from a small farm town outside of Sacramento, CA to Los Angeles in 2003 to finish school at Pepperdine University, in Malibu. He has been working in IT security and compliance since 2005, most notably as Director of IT Compliance for Paramount Pictures and Viacom Inc. He now is a consultant for entertainment and media companies implementing Cybersecurity and IT Risk Management programs. Jeff is a self-proclaimed and proud nerd. He enjoys anything that deals with sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and/or comic books/Manga. One of his greatest pleasures is playing video games where he can experience a number of different fantasies and worlds, both individually as well as with others. His pride and joy in life is his dog Chunks, a Pitt/Bulldog/Chow mix who has more energy than the energizer bunny. Jeff is very close with his family and spends as much time in northern California as possible. When Jeff goes out in Los Angeles he can usually be found at The Eagle LA where he feels most at Home in Los Angeles. He was also lucky enough to find the Cloud to his Zack, an amazing man who he has been sharing this experience with and has really come to cherish.
There are a couple quotes that mean a great deal to me and I try to live by:
