Biography

Kersley’s love for hacking started in his adolescence when he would take apart his R/C cars and Nintendos to learn about their inner workings and attempt to put them back together again. Sometimes, that didn’t work out.. Kersley became fascinated by computers at a young age  and became determined to study technology and hacking concepts after learning what getting hacked felt like the hard way (downloaded a trojan).  He caught the computer geek bug largely through close friends who spent way too much time modifying games & consoles, and seeking better ways to play Starcraft and Unreal tournament. He started studying hacking zines with his friends and searched for ways to apply his knowledge in a good way, sometimes gaining access to computers and leaving “Read Me” notes for others to secure their desktops. He grew up loving hacker culture and thinking “outside the box”. His favorite exploit was in 1991 when he befriended a kid genius  from New York who methodically targeted coca-cola vending machines to siphon quarters with nothing but two toothpicks and motivation. Together, they dominated in Mortal Kombat 2 arcade replay. With over 19 years of fun and experience, he still loves what he studies. Kersley holds a B.S. in Information Technology from George Mason University, a CISSP, CEH certification, and enjoys everything about working with CyberVista.
