About me

Started programming at the age of ten and spent last eight years in bringing powerful ideas to life as a profession. Still passionate about building and sometimes, breaking, things.

I am obsessed with building and operating large-scale distributed systems on cloud native infrastructure. I believe toil should be automated and innovation do not have to come at cost of reliability, or as Google puts it, Site Reliability Engineering.

Currently living in the Netherlands, looking after one of the largest MySQL deployments on this planet.
