About me

An engineer’s perspective, a storyteller’s heart

about me

From network architect to writer, blending tech and creativity to create impactful stories.

More than 15 years ago, when I was starting out as an IP network engineer, I never thought I would change careers later on, much less become a writer. I’ve always been fascinated by the technical aspect of things and how things happen – I loved reading about the bits and bytes and I loved spotting software bugs, which saved companies millions. I started as a trainee and climbed my way up to become one of the few IP network architects for a major European service provider.

My journey from technology to storytelling began as I utilized my writing for technical projects at work, eventually leading me to embrace writing fully, blending my passions for technology and storytelling into a full-time job. Initially, this was limited to documenting projects and assisting colleagues, but soon I found myself helping friends and accepting small gigs on the side. This gradual immersion into the world of writing led me to realize that I could make a significant difference, one story at a time.

As a freelance journalist, I’m looking to find the next big story that will influence people and make a difference. Every person has a story to tell, and from those stories, there is always one that will not only captivate, inform, and inspire, but also have a lasting impact on the lives of other people. My goal is to find that story.
