Jared Haight, Microsoft

After hours and on the weekends Price enjoys long walks on the beach, breaking hardware, racing cars, and competitive shooting. By day, Justin Berry works as a senior security consultant where he does things and other stuff, but by night, he’s been referred to as a metal-head drinker with a hacking problem.
