What’s a skill or talent you have that most people wouldn’t expect?
  • I have a knack for solving Rubik’s Cubes in under two minutes. It’s a hobby I picked up a while back, and people are often surprised by how quickly I can solve them. I’m also flexible like you wouldn’t believe.
What’s a feature in Azure you can work with over and over again without getting tired of it?
  • I never get tired of working with Azure Functions. The ability to build serverless applications quickly and efficiently always keeps me committed and excited.
Disc Golf or Boomer golf?
  • Disc Golf, grip it and rip it! It’s a fun and laid-back sport that combines elements of traditional golf with the simplicity of throwing discs.
What is the most fun in Azure right now?
  • Building Pipelines in Azure DevOps is the latest thing that made me work the entire weekend with a smile on my face, automating image building.
If you could invent something, what would it be and why?
  • There’s so much things I want to learn, so either a way to learn faster or slow down time.
What’s the most unusual job you’ve ever had?
  • I worked as a green-keeper. Needless to say, it was a short-lived career.
Why did you join Unwonted?
  • I joined Unwonted because of the people. We worked together at my previous employer, and I can tell you, these are some of the smartest and most inspiring people I’ve come across during my career. I’m proud to call them friends.
Unwonted or Unwanted?
  • Unwonted, without doubt! It signifies something unique and out of the ordinary, which perfectly aligns with my own values and aspirations.
What’s the most daring adventure you’ve embarked on?
  • Visiting Zion National Park and Climbing Angels Landing together with my sister back in 2019. An extremely cool hike/climb that I would recommend everyone to do if possible.
What are you most looking forward to in 2024?
  • Letting ChatGPT answer questions like the ones above so I can continue to contribute to my customers cloud journey and make sure that they get the help and support they actually need, I thrive on helping others and making their lives easier in the cloud, it doesn’t matter if it’s networking, virtual machines, automation, functions, or even cost savings
