Welcome to my profile! I'm a seasoned (over 9 years) IT professional and system developer, bringing a wide range of experiences from various aspects of the field. My expertise encompasses a broad array of skills and technologies indispensable in today's digital world.

One of my strong suits is virtualization, specifically in Proxmox and KVM. I specialize in virtualizing servers, automating tasks, and managing virtual machines to ensure optimal utilization of resources.

In addition, I'm highly skilled in open-source applications. I can create nearly any required infrastructure / workflow using open-source projects, thus preventing expensive license costs and maintaining privacy, as well as develop any custom solution. As a Linux enthusiast, I also bring my expertise in this robust and versatile operating system to the table.

But my experience doesn't stop here. As a seasoned system administrator, I have extensive experience in managing IT systems. I'm proficient in installing, configuring, updating, and troubleshooting both software and hardware components, using tools like Windows Server and Linux (any flavour).

I also have expertise in network and system engineering. Whether it's designing or implementing a network, optimizing a system, or working on system integration and architecture design, I have the skills and experience.

Lastly, my portfolio includes a solid background in IT security. I am proficient in implementing security protocols, managing firewalls, and conducting risk assessments, and I am experienced in using IDS/IPS, SIEM, and firewalls like OPNsense and PFsense.

In a nutshell, my diverse technical skill set and profound understanding of IT and development make me an ideal resource for any project. I look forward to working with you and delivering solutions that exceed your expectations.
