About Me

For quite some time, I have been working with VMware virtualized infrastructure: first as a VM consumer, and very soon as an administrator/developer for quite large vSphere deployments as a I was working at an MSP. With my next employer, I was desperate to learn more. I started working more with HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) with VMware Cloud Foundation 3.6+ and vRealize Suite components in a large hospital environment, as well as Software Defined Storage and Network (vSAN and NSX), EUC (VMware Horizon) and physical server and storage hardware.

I have always been a VMware evanglist within the companies I worked for. But ever since I moved forward and started working with ITQ, Netherlands #1 VMware Partner, I really felt I wanted to share much more with the community. In August 2023, my efforts have been honoured with my first vExpert Award, and in April 2024 I was awarded the Special Honors Subprograms vExpert vSAN, NSX and SDDC Manager awards. As you can imagine, I’m very grateful for the appreciation by the vCommunity, and keep on progressing!

I enjoy being among fellow virtualization enthousiasts and hang out with them at the VMUG or VMware Explore in Barcelona. On the private front, I enjoy being a father and husband, but I also like my piano, my LEGO’s and home automation.

In this blog I will frequently post articles regarding topics I ran into, thereby sharing and giving back to the vCommunity.
Read my post on my first session during the VMUGNL Usercon 2024, which I attended as a speaker on March 26th, 2024: vCommunity, and what’s in it for you.
