Hey, I’m Ryan downindrakes. I’m currently a cybersecurity engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, working on cybersecurity research and development projects to help secure the US.

I am passionate about a lot of things and this blog aims to be an exploration of at least some of them. I am currently just working on getting content in place so that I can work on the exciting part, which is automating the rendering, deployment, and delivery of the website. Hopefully using a few AWS services I haven’t touched before.
