How it Started

I woke up one day and started writing my thoughts down about my cyber roller coaster ride, and after ten months of this I had ~140,000 words on digital paper. While this was rewarding for therapeutic reasons, I didn’t know what to do with it. I thought, “maybe I could publish this as a book.” That sounded cool at first. Yeah, I’d be an author – good for me. And then I realized – it all starts with knowing your audience. It’s not about me.

I saw all these short forms of content and realized that I would better serve my fellow Cyber PMMs with blog posts, videos, tools, and frameworks that you can actually use to fight against the chaos that we face on a daily basis. So I bought a domain name, began building this blog/website/brand, and that’s how it started.


Helping Cyber PMMs fight digital chaos by creating an open source library of content, frameworks, and tools that bring order to Cyber PMMs and sanity for buyers.  


A world where cyber products and services are accurately represented in a clear, honest, and organized way for the sanity of buyers.

What's with the Blue Whale?

The Cyber PMM logo is about creating order out of chaos. I have always loved blue whales, because they ride among the chaotic ocean currents in a trusting way. This is why a blue whale in the shape of a C is the icon of Cyber PMM.
