What does a typical workday look like to you?

I spend most of my time on customer projects. The remaining time is allocated to various help desk tasks, development of internal systems and preparation of procedures. In addition, I also spend some time on further education, so that I am constantly developing myself and following trends in my field of expertise.

Which technologies do you work with?

I work with so many different technologies that it doesn't make sense to mention them all here, but in database platform it is especially the Oracle databases Oracle Cloud, Linux and other open source databases.

What drives you to go to work?

Helping customers to (re)implement systems that improve their workflow.

I strongly believe in the principle of making things as simple as possible, within the requirements of the task.

What is the best thing about working in Cegal?

We have a very high technical level, which is inspiring to be surrounded by. There is a great deal of freedom in structuring the work and what you work with. Fantastically helpful colleagues and, last but perhaps most importantly, we have a shared focus on the customer's best interests, which means that we deliver at a very high level, which I find incredibly satisfying.

What typical projects do you work on?

Right now, primarily projects where we are responsible for migration or implementation to the cloud.

You work as a cloud architect, what does that really mean?

This means embracing broadly, as cloud solutions typically contain many of the facets that are typically divided into technology areas, for which there again are dedicated departments when we talk about on-site solutions.

Have you taken any exciting certifications?

Yes, Oracle Database, Oracle Cloud and RedHat. However, my opinion is that certifications are a good way to get to know areas, but nothing beats the real world and the fact of working with the technologies on real projects.

You primarily work with Oracle, how did you end up in that world?

The Oracle database had been of interest to me for many years. At first I was primarily a Linux/Unix administrator, but when I got the opportunity to become an Oracle DBA at DSB in 2005, I couldn't say no. So I've stuck to both ever since, which has often been an advantage.

Do you have a favorite quote?

No, not really, but there are a lot of really sensible people. I really like this:

"We only regret the things we didn't do"

This or that?

Android or iPhone?

iTunes or Spotify?

Call or text message?

Emoji or text?

Snapchat or Instagram?



Depends on what message is to be given

Text – But I have to admit that a gif flies occasionally.


Is there anything else we should know about you?

It is possible that I lack the necessary self-awareness to be able to answer this question sensibly - but I doubt that it surprises anyone 😉

However, I can say that I like all kinds of movement, preferably outdoors. My primary sport is strength training, which I have been doing for over 20 years.
