Cybersecurity Organizations

CCDC

I was the captain of UT's Collegiate Cybersecurity Defense Competition (CCDC) team for 2020 and 2021. In CCDC, teams of 8 students must defend 8-10 machines from red team attackers while also completing business 'injects' (like setting up new services, managing users, etc.). As captain, I delegated tasks and worked on any extra technical or business injects that need help. At the Southwest Regional we placed 2nd in 2019 and 3rd in 2020 place; in 2021 we won the Southwest Regional and competed at Nationals for the first time!

CPTC

I was the captain of UT's Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition (CPTC) team for 2020 and co-captain in 2019. CPTC is a competition where teams of 6 students are tasked with performing a comprehensive penetration test for a fake company, and then delivering a detailed report of the vulnerabilities and security flaws they found. In 2019, we placed 2nd at the New England Regionals.

ISSS

I was President of the Information & System Security Society, a club dedicated to cybersecurity, from spring 2020 to spring 2021. Before that, I served as an engineering officer for 2 years. I wrote problems and challenges for the CTFs we held every two weeks, and gave talks about introductory security topics. I managed an officer team of 15, and we had 100+ members. We also held a yearly international CTF called UTCTF that had 1200+ competitors from all over the globe (I lead this project in 2020 and 2021).

Computer Science Organizations

ACM

For 2 years, I served as a Web/Tech office for UT's Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) chapter. I kept the TexasACM.org website up to date and free of bugs, responded to issues on our GitHub page, and maintained the GitHub Wiki. I also created, wrote curriculum for and hosted a series of introductory workshops for new CS majors to introduce them to topics like Linux, Git/VCS, debugging, and more.

Waitlisters

I was one of the co-founders of a hackathon team called 'The Waitlisters'. Started at HackTX 2017, we particpated in dozens of hackathons across the US. We finished in the top 3 at multiple competitions, and we even took home the grand prize at TAMUhack 2019. Besides Hackathons, we also particpated in CTFs and Programming Competitions.

Fun Organizations

Hook 'Em Arts

I was a member of the Hook 'Em Arts club at UT, a student organization dedicated to promoting and enjoying performing arts. We hosted Loft Events for shows that come through the Bass Concert Hall, and volunteered at youth performances. We also spread awareness of student shows and performances on campus.

Austin Quidditch

For 2 years, I played on one of UT's club Quidditch teams, and yes, I mean the sport from Harry Potter! It's a competitive team that plays against other colleges and universities in the US Quidditch League. If you're wondering, I was primarily a Chaser and occasionally played Seeker.
