About me

I've been working in IT since 1999 in various functions, from support desk to frontend development, Cisco network engineering, Linux engineer and currently mainly focused on technical consultancy, specifically the design and implementation of VMware NSX. In addition, i like to stay up to date on security news and trends, which certainly helps in the networking world.

Currently i'm employed by ITQ, a VMware consultancy partner based in the Netherlands. In addition, VMware Professional Services has regular projects all around the EMEA and MENA region, allowing me to work all across the globe.
