Hi, I’m Brent and I’m a researcher at the Army Cyber Institute at West Point. I also teach in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I started in the military as a cryptanalyst until I was offered an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy as a cadet. In addition to studying electrical engineering and computer science at West Point, I participated in student hacking and tinkering clubs and spent my summers using my MacGyver skills while interning at various government agencies. After graduation, I joined the Army’s communication branch, the Signal Corps, as a Second Lieutenant. Recently, the Army introduced a new branch, Cyber, and I am thrilled to be among the first few Cyber Officers selected.
When not in uniform, I spend my time in my wood shop making stuff big and small, or out photographing the world. I also spend a lot of time attending awesome events like Maker Faire and various security conferences. I have a passion for technology education and I love tinkering with (breaking) gadgets. I usually post the evidence on my site http://www.brentmorelabs.com.
I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences as a military technologist & maker.
