If you want to work with me just get in touch! Iโ€™m always open to new & interesting opportunities.

Looking for a portfolio of what I created?

Interests

My interests range widely but are somewhat confined to the technology sphere.

Tools & Technologies

PowerShell

It is my daily driver and first choice for anything from quick proof-of-concept scripts to large scale backend operations.

It runs most of my daily automations and event based logic in small function-as-a-service scenarios.

The Basic Web Stack

I have a solid understanding of HTML and CSS, but am lacking in the area of JavaScript.

Most of what I do is either static rendered sites like this one with Hugo, plain HTML served with NGINX or server-side rendered content with Django or Flask.

Python

It’s my language of choice for complex web systems or APIs. I’m comfortable with Django and can use Flask if need be.

Ansible

YAML, agent-less, automation - there is no other three word combination that makes me happier.

I’ve used it in completely new projects, challenging legacy infrastructure and situations where challenging doesn’t even cut it to manage both Linux and Windows hosts as well as cloud services.

Git(lab)

Git is my version control of choice and whenever I have the chance I will use GitLab and it’s great CI/CD tooling to make life simpler.

Personally I use their great SaaS offering but I have experience running 100+ user deployments on premise including runners on container clusters, Linux and Windows hosts.

Where Code Runs

In the end code needs to run somewhere - OpenShift is where it’s at in my day job so I’m quite comfortable with it.

For personal projects I’m more drawn towards VM based deployments with Ansible on DigitalOcean or experimenting with function-as-a-service environments.
