CactusCon — a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit org with the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) — is the largest annual hacker and security conference in Arizona. We are approaching our 12th iteration of the conference, and we couldn’t be more excited! Over the years, CactusCon has established a solid reputation as a top-tier security conference and has quickly become a must-attend learning and networking event.

I served as the conference’s lead organizer for CC9 and CC10 (2021-22). I later served as the Sponsor/Community Liaison for CC11 (2023). Moving into and beyond 2024, I continue my role on the Call for Papers (CFP) board. Though the time investment for the lead & sponsor roles were too much given my other work and life schedules, I am extremely happy to continue advocating for the conference and engaging with the community. In fact, I would love for you to become involved :).
