Who I am

A tech journey

My journey in the tech industry began during my Information Sciences studies, where I fell in love with data-driven projects and statistical learning. This passion led me to explore languages like Python and LaTeX, enabling me to bring ideas to life through powerful data management and visualization.

Present day

I'm a passionate DevOps engineer based in Zaandam, Netherlands. At 28 years old, I've already gathered a wealth of experience and expertise in the world of technology. From programming in Python, Javascript, and Bash to utilizing cutting-edge technologies provisioned using Terraform, Bicep, and Kubernetes, I've honed my skills to drive efficient and innovative solutions.

At Triple, I've embraced the world of Azure and Azure DevOps, mastering the intricacies of cloud architecture and deployment. Attaining certifications like AZ-104 and CKA has further solidified my expertise, empowering me to build and manage robust, scalable, and secure cloud environments. My proficiency in containerization and Kubernetes has allowed me to take application development to new heights, ensuring seamless and efficient deployment at scale.

What I am about

Cats, code and automation

As a DevOps engineer, I thrive on solving complex challenges with the power of code and automation. My passion for streamlining workflows led me to create internal tooling using APIs, boosting productivity for myself and my colleagues. Outside of work, I enjoy taking on side projects that push my boundaries, expanding my skill set, and exploring new technologies. I strongly believe that innovation and continuous learning are key drivers of success in the ever-evolving tech landscape.

Friendly whiskers and collaboration

When I'm not wrapped up in cooking up techie stuff, you might catch me just hanging out with two things I absolutely love: cats and whiskey. There's just something about chilling with cats, their funny antics always put a smile on my face. And as for whiskey, I'm all about those fancy flavors and the whole art of making it. Both of these things? They're my way of kicking back, recharging, and letting my creative juices flow.

But hey, that's not all there is to me! I'm all about going on crazy adventures with my tight-knit crew of pals, and my amazing girlfriend who's known me since I was a little tike.

I'm always eager to collaborate on exciting projects and explore new opportunities. Whether it's discussing data-driven ideas, cloud architecture, or just sharing cute cat pictures, I'd love to connect with like-minded individuals. Feel free to reach out to me through the provided contact information. Let's work together to create something extraordinary!
