Emily "Hexadecim8" Crose

At Home

I am not just a network security professional, I have hobbies and interests that don't intersect at all with security.

In my free time, I write essays, take care of my family, and enjoy an occassional drink or two. I also have a number of side-projects that keep my busy. I also enjoy raising pepper plants and making edible products from them.

I am a tea drinker (not to be confused with teetotaler), my favorite season is autumn, and I am an addict to true history and reasearching our past. I firmly believe that a person should not summarize themselves by the job they do, but by the actions they take which they aren't paid for.
