I am currently working as a freelancer under the Hostatic moniker and contracting with companies like Container Solutions or nearForm, helping my and their clients design, configure, scale and automate their cloud or on-premise infrastructure, configure their continous delivery pipeline, implement configuration management and infrastructure as code and generally apply DevOps practices and tools.
In a previous life, I have spent seven great years spent working at booking.com, doing the same infrastructure-y things and before that I used to do the same thing at Gameloft. I also tried my luck in various small startups, some of my own, scratching that entrepreneurial itch.
I love what I do, I strongly believe in automation and infrastructure as code and operate somewhere at the intersection of ops and dev, with a focus on ops. Another thing I truly enjoy is helping small to medium size companies scale and automate their infrastructure as they grow their business. If you think my skills would be useful to you, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
At work and in my spare time I hack around various system tools, try out new technologies and work on various projects that I started alongside good friends. Some of these end up on my Github account. I really like the interesection of technology and other fields (eg. urbanism). That’s why I try to get out of my tech bubble and mix things up. You can check out some of my projects here.
Over the last few years I have gotten myself involved in projects outside my usual scope: volunteering my skills to a NGO that operates in the realm of good governance and civic education, as I believe this is one way I can contribute back to society and make a positive change.
I also blog about the things I find interesting, whenever I find the time to do so.
Currently I live in Bucharest, Romania, my home base - and still favourite place to explore - for most of my life minus 3 years lived in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I used both cities as a jump pad for various adventures throughout the world.
If you want to get in touch with me, be it to say ‘hi’ or hire me, you can do it via any of the links below or through my favourite communication medium, to which I will remain forever loyal no matter how many social media networks pop-up, the e-mail.
