Simeon Kakpovi

Programmer and Cyber-guy


My name is Simeon Kakpovi. I am a proud Beninese-American, Marylander, and Howard University Bison.

I am passionate about using technology to create positive change. Currently, I am growing my career in the (fun and challenging) cyber security field. My side hustle is building websites and creating digital experiences.

Dearest to my heart, however, is getting more black students to learn how to code. Feel free to reach out to learn more!
