I ♥

everything UN*X. Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris all have a special place in my heart. I began working with FreeBSD and Linux around the turn of the millennium and Solaris followed shortly after.

I also have a knack for Virtualization, having worked with almost every major virtualization/containerization solution available in the market including Kubernetes/Istio, Docker, Google Cloud, AWS, VMWare vSphere, Citrix XenServer, Redhat RHEV/KVM, OpenStack and OpenVZ.

Lastly, I hold 5+ years under my belt of infrastructure automation and assorted ecosystems (Chef, Ansible, chef-dk, test-kitchen, serverspec among others) and have contributed to or are actively maintaining a good amount of cookbooks and tools.


Erlang (5+ years), Elixir (2+ years), Javascript/NodeJS (2+ years), Go (1 year), Bash (10+ years), Lua (and NGINX/Lua) (3+ years), Python (2+ years), Ruby (4+ years) and Delphi ??.

Also Greek, English, French and a little bit of Spanish.


playing acoustic fingerstyle guitar, listening to diverse genres of music and being a fanatic bookworm (technology, mathematics, astrophysics, physics and philosophy are my main areas of interest). Currently, astronomy and astrophotography occupy most of my free time.

On my really really spare time, I slide on ice on a board or skates.
