When asked by his 1st grade teacher to illustrate his future career, he drew on a sheet that he wanted to become a Cyber Spy. Today, he is on his journey to make his dreams come true. For the past couple of years, he has been learning about information security and programming, and in the summer of 2014, with the support of his family, he founded and serves as CEO of Prudent Games Inc, a company that serves to educate while entertaining its customers. Prudent Games has the motto, "Learn While You Play". He is working on developing apps and games that teach Information (Cyber) Security and Math and in the future wishes to include Science, History and Arts. But, Reuben is not just another computer geek. He lives a life on the edge, between his school, as a straight 'A' student and all of his other passions. When he is not playing video games or on the computer, he likes to read, and takes classes to play inline Hockey, Swim, do Gymnastics, Shaolin Do KungFu, play Piano, Drums and do Art. Reuben is an invited speaker, delivering awareness talks and keynotes on the importance of teaching CyberSecurity to kids.

They have become a source of inspiration to kids and adults alike to start teaching CyberSecurity to kids.

With the help of his parents and industry leaders, Reuben also founded a cybersecurity awareness and education organization called CyberShaolin which has the mission to educate, equip and empower kids with cybersecurity knowledge, using videos and games that he is developing.
