About Me

Let me tell you who I am

My Career

I work at atos as a Service Unit Lead for the Websystems Team. We provide high reliability engineering for medium and large server environments for several large organizations. My team supports Unix/Linux, so we see a lot of RedHat and some legacy Solaris/SunOS servers.

Previously I worked 7 years in WSI / First Consulting Group, ever since getting an internship the last semester of my career (Software Engineer).

I started as a developer and systems administrator and got to be a Project Manager after my predecessor decided to leave due to health reasons (or so we think). I did a lot of interaction with clients and managed all the projects for WSI.

GNU/Linux Sysadmin

Linux Counter

For about 14 years now, I've been using Open Source Unix variants. Lots of distro hopping and BSD testing, so I've picked up some skills in sysadmining.

This website is currently running in a hosted Google Cloud Storage instance and taking advantage of Cloudflare technologies to ensure uninterrupted service (I grew tired of hosting providers spotty service so I'm giving the Cloud a shot).

I read a lot:

I keep track of the books I consume, you can check out the latest books I'm into (I ocassionally get a request for comments on my reading list or book recommendations).
