Welcome to my personal website
02 About

Hello There!

With 20 years of experience working in several leading companies, I've become a unique asset. My expertise blends communication and sales skills with a robust technical foundation.

I am a versatile 'plug-and-play' team member, equally adept at working independently. Self-aware and an enthusiastic learner, I strive for excellence in all my endeavors.

My experience extends to deploying and administering various technologies, including Linux, Docker, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, Terraform, InfluxDB, Grafana, Prometheus, Ansible, Veeam, VMware, Google Cloud, AWS, G Suite, Office 365, among others.

As a data-driven and passionate software engineer, I love creating small, impactful tools that solve problems. My recent focus has been on Frontend development with React (JavaScript) and Backend development with Python, utilizing tools like FastAPI. I see myself as a businessman with a keen focus on business objectives without losing sight of the technical details.

In 2020, I was honored with several recognitions:

  • Traefik Ambassador
  • InfluxAce
  • Winner of the Founder's Choice Award at InfluxData

Understanding both business and technology, I believe I am an ideal candidate for roles like Fractional CTO, Technical Account Manager, Business Developer, or Community Leader.
