How did you get into IT?

Started at the age of 14 playing with computers and made a job from my hobby specialized in system engineering, virtualisation and networking.

How did you get into working with VMware and becoming a 2011 vExpert?

Started with ESX 3.5 a few year ago, changed jobs where I had to design and implement the whole vSphere infrastructure (version 4.0) and currently still holding that position. Started a blog where I post my experiences and furthermore I tend to be active on the VMware communities and Twitter.

What would you tell someone who wanted to get a job like yours to do?

Feel free to call me if you need help 😉
