Where others have failed, I will succeed. ✌️ My credentials include multiple certifications from Google, Microsoft, CompTIA, Cisco, AWS, cPanel, Plesk, MongoDB, (ISC)², Fortinet, and more.

Russell is one of the best freelancers I’ve worked with. I’m lucky to have had found him because he resolved a security problem that multiple other developers were unable to identify much less fix. Amazing, simply amazing. I will definitely be working with Russell again!
