Robert Johnson, Senior Information Security Engineer

I have over 25 years of experience architecting and developing innovative business solutions using cutting edge technology. Throughout this time, I have held many positions including application developer, Webmaster, Team Lead, Systems Architect, Scrum Master, CTO, and Business Owner. I am a self-motivated, out-of-the-box thinker. I like to work on challenging projects that continually push me to learn more and to keep my skills and talents sharp. I have always treated each of the companies I worked with as if they were my own, always striving to achieve success.

Outside of work I am father to two teenagers, and husband to a wonderful hard-working wife. I love to cook but hate to clean up. While I would prefer to spend my time on the water fishing, I usually end up with empty buckets. I enjoy learning new things and spend a lot of my limited free time reading topics ranging from stock trading, self-improvement, fitness, and woodworking to the standard fiction including most books from Clancy, Tolkien, and Jordan to name a few.
