Independent Consultant and Trainer:

Cloud Engineering, DevOps

+ Technical Leadership

About me

Throughout the past three decades, I was active in different fields of IT.

Having grown up in software development, I work different domains and roles such as developer, architect trainer, technical project management and leadership.

With the advent of container technology, DevOps gradually became my focus.

I'm a contributor to many open source projects, publish articles, posts and books regularly and love speaking at conferences.

As technical Lead of the infra and consulting teams at Cloudogu, my daily work is about the Cloud, DevOps, GitOps and Kubernetes, among other things.

In this role, I helped to establish modern ops processes in small and large organizations.

My current focus are our internal Kubernetes and GitOps-based developer platform, as well as development of the GitOps Playground.

Since 2021, I'm on the program advisory board of the Mastering GitOps conference.

I'm also available as an independent consultant.

Available as independent consultant


Through my work as a practitioner, author, speaker, trainer and technical leader in the fields of cloud engineering, GitOps and Kubernetes, I am one of the leading experts in these areas.

I am happy to pass on this experience as an independent consultant.

My unique selling point: you can arrange an appointment with me in a timely and uncomplicated manner.

  • Are you facing a major design decision and would like an independent opinion?
  • Pondering if Kubernetes and/or GitOps is right for your use case?
  • Looking for the right tool (GitOps, IaC, monitoring/alerting, secrets management, etc.) for your use case?
  • You are restructuring your operations / GitOps processes?
  • You have detailed technical/operational questions about the Cloud, Kubernetes, DevOps?
  • You are getting started in the (public) cloud and want to avoid pitfalls?
  • Wondering whether to accept a vendor lock-in?

I am looking forward to assisting you in a personal consultation. Ideally today.️
