About Me

Hello, friend. I'm Nathan.

I'm a devoted Information Security professional within the NC area. I have a diverse background, a plethora of interesting stories documenting my ability to overcome extenuating circumstances, and a drive for continuing education. I actively practice and consult within the information security space. I have  a strong interest in penetration testing,  threat analysis, studying TTP's, personal privacy with a focus on consumer tactics and education for protecting one's identity and assets.  

My skill set and interests are rather eclectic and diverse.  

  • Undergraduate degree in Information Security
  • Life-long learner
  • I enjoy using python 🐍, though I've grown to enjoy PowerShell
  • I have a strong interest in physical security, incident response, and pentesting
  • I have a decent, intermediate working knowldege of graphics design
  • I help host a local security group in and around the Hickory NC area
  • Myers-Briggs: INTJ


I'm a privacy enthusiast - thus my PII is extremely important to me. Because of such, and not unlike others in the security space, I have a handful of aliases.

You can call me Neisan Yamamoto, or Yama, or Nathan.
