Paul credits Jacqueline with her unwavering support during a frustrating time.

Fifteen years of IT Security and Innovation
Ten years of Military Experience
Five years of Leadership Management

Mr. Pearson credits his time in the military for where he is today. His first formal education in IT was through the US Air Force Reserve.
