Last Post. New Beginning.

"It's time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and I'd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure."  - Ernie Harwell

In 2011, I started Soul of a Geek as an place for me to express my opinions about things in the world of technology. "Technology with a touch of soul." In 2014, I decided to go back to school to pursue a Masters of Science in Cybersecurity as a way to evolve my IT career. I have always had an interests in security since my early days in the IT field but never focused on pursuing that interest. After earning my bachelors' degree, a few certifications and starting my current job, I decided that it was as good of a time as any to jumpstart my career evolution into the cybersecurity field.

Because I was spending more time with my studies, I spent less time writing blog posts. At the same time, I started thinking more about my blog. The closer I looked at it, the more I saw it as "Hey! Look at the new tech toy I got!" and less commentary about the IT field. This was not the original vision I had for my blog as a place to share my passion for technology. At this point, I had two options: revise the current Soul of a Geek site or start over fresh.  The more I thought about it and looked closely at the direction I wanted my career to evolve, I decided that the best option was to start over with a new site. Enter Tech To InfoSec.

Tech To InfoSec will focus on my journey as an IT professional into the world of cybersecurity. The goal of my new site is to serve as a repository for all of my thoughts and research as I transition into becoming an IT security professional. More importantly, I wanted to create a site that was much cleaner and professional looking going forward.

So what happens to Soul of a Geek? Who knows. I may one day I may revise it (I do like the name and good domain names are hard to come by these days) but for now it will be more of an archive site.  For now, I hope that you will enjoy the content that I will post on Tech To InfoSec.
