A true Rotterdam mentality by raising the sleeves and not applying words but actions, I work accordingly ‘actions speak louder than words’. A well-known statement for Rotterdam residents. I am a true ‘Rotterdammer’ born and raised. (Picture is of my hometown) I can easily translate the requirements and wishes of the client into concrete proposals or solutions. As an architect, I work structured and my way of working is result-oriented. With my strong communication skills, I work very well with my colleagues in a group and can act as a coach. ✓ I create insight and overview ✓ I am a winner and go for 1st place, 2nd place I see as the best loser ✓ I design and build (cloud / server) infrastructures ✓ I want to save costs by using Cloud Techniques and using them optimally ✓ I spot opportunities ✓ I have a keen eye for risks and come proactive with advice to mitigate it ✓ I migrate infrastructure from A to B in the cloud without business impact ✓ I analyze and control security and governance impact of a cloud implementation and transition ✓ I would like to share my knowledge and experience in various communities and coach colleagues and blog about it I have a fond interest in new technologies within DevOps, cloud management and cloud adoption. Strong focus on, but certainly not limited to, VMware technologies. I have specialised myself in the areas of enterprise (cloud) (virtual) infrastructures, compute, storage and Cloud solutions. Next to my daily work, I regularly attend big events like VMworld, VMUGs and other industry events and Blog about it. Also I write articles for several websites like Dutch IT Channel, Computable, ICT Magazine and Executive People. In my spare time, I like to be with my wife and kids, doing fun stuff together, we go camping a lot and enjoying nature. Next to that, I am a big fan of Feyenoord, the biggest club in the Netherlands. I’m attending as many games as I can, else I will watch the game on TV because I never want to miss a game of Feyenoord. Also I’m a big fan of Cycling especially the Tour de France. Do you have a storage, cloud or virtualisation question or issue? Or maybe just want to brainstorm about cool new solutions. Just contact me! I’m very open and always want to meet new people 🙂 Everything I post on this blog is based on my personal view.
