About Me

Hi there!

I’m a cloud-certified (Azure/AWS/GCP) architect and a father of two after work hours, and this is my website. I live in Sydney and have been blogging for a decade now. My old website was overloaded with Windows stuff, so this one is new, dedicated explicitly to Cloud and stuff around it.

Over the recent years, I have been working around Azure, AWS and GCP, but I gradually focused on Azure, as it makes more sense when coming from a Microsoft background. (lol)

On the professional side, I have architectural experience in Azure/DevOps/Security. And I’m Microsoft Certified Trainer and a Microsoft MVP in Security.

I’m also certified in Azure, AWS, GCP and other technologies – details to follow.
