I am a very driven IT Architect, mainly specialized within the VMware industry. Building virtual infrastructures and contributing to IT solutions is what I love doing most. I developed myself well on the SDDC stack and gained a lot of experience with implementations, migrations, and designs. Currently, I’m working at VMware as a Consulting Architect within the NEMEA region.

My dogs Hoshi and Kayto are one of the many things I’m proud of.  Hoshi is a Japanese Akita and Kayto is a crossbreed dog between the Golden Retriever and the Australian Shepherd.

I would like to mention my passion for football as well. I support Feyenoord in Holland very fanatically and I feel it is the most beautiful and also sometimes annoying club I know. But we, the fans are very very passionate about the club and that’s one of the main reasons I like it so much.

I am a huge fan of motorsports, and watch MotoGP if I am able to find the time. Nowadays my priority lies more by the motorsports with 4 wheels, mainly watching Formula 1 and the IndyCar series. I really enjoy to see that every time the F1 teams keeps developing to get faster and better. Obviously, I am a dutchie and therefore a huge fan of Max Verstappen #33 who drives for Red Bull Racing.

Last, but certainly not least.. I am a Sim Racer in my private time, spending a lot of time in my sim rig while playing race simulators in different cars and tracks. Driving, GT3, GTE, and Formula style cars. I am founder and driver of WPR Racing NL, a sim racing team mainly focussing on endurance race events.

Because of this sim racing hobby, together with some friends we’ve create a Podcast dedicated to sim racing. Our Podcast show comes every month with a new episode and is called Sim Craft Podcast.
