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, Docker, VMWare vSphere, Citrix XenServer, Redhat RHEV/KVM, AWS, OpenStack and OpenVZ.

Lastly, the last few years I’ve been working with 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.


Go, Erlang, Elixir, Bash, Lua (and NGINX/Lua), Ruby, Javascript, Python and Delphi, in order of fluency.

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, religion and philosophy are my main areas of interest).

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