About Me

I'm a Virtualization Consultant from Belgium. I am currently working for Xylos, giving our clients the best possible expertise on everything related to VMWare, Citrix, Hyper-V, RES and other virtualization technologies.

My Past

In the past I've been employed at Centix, Procter & Gamble, Hewlett-Packard, Puratos and Edenred, doing Datacenter and Infrastructure jobs. I've worked my way up through experience thanks to these great opportunities.
