When I am not writing some amazing code, starting up Linux servers or creating another Azure key vault entry, I spend my extra time playing computer games with family and friends.

Something not a lot of people know about me is that I am a very big MTG (Magic the Gathering) card collector. I also love going on adventures with family and friends in our Dungeons and Dragons game, it helps with sharpening those “social skills” of mine.

So yes, I am not just a professional, I am also the full Nerdy package 😉
