I am a 37 year-old experienced system administrator on multiple system-architectures / types in different operation-settings. I mainly focus on Linux and Unix-type (POSIX) systems on x86 / x86_64 and various ARM-platforms.

I also have varied experience(s) with select PowerPC-platforms (like Power Mac G5 (PowerPC 970FX) with OS X) and some Sparc-platforms (SPARC64 / UltraSPARC) running Sun Solaris (I have experience with this OS on both the SPARC- and x86/x64-platforms).

I would describe myself as independant, structured, problem-solving and responsible. I like challenges and am not afraid to give an extra effort. I also possess quite a bit of special competancy in; admin / security / network, but I also learn quickly about new technology.

I have american blood on my mother-side of the family, so I both talk and write fluent english.

Currently working as Operations Engineer for a local growing service-provider company involved in deep learning, virtual assistants, Big Data.

Earlier positions have included responsibilities and work-tasks that includes: system-administation, network-security, server-patching / -problem-solving, rack/blade-operation and other complicated (and less complicated) assignments in datacenter- / «corporate»- and small / medium-sized private businesses.

In Linux-based technology I have used different distributions over the years (even on differencing platforms), but always ended up using (and loving) the 3 originals; Slackware, Debian and Red Hat.

I personally use desktop-Linux for daily routines / tasks, have favored the use of Linux for server-tasks / stability, use my own customized Linux-based solutions on integrated systems (embedded / SoC) for diverse purposes (weather, surveillance, digital remote-lock) and I've configured and operated standard-services (e-mail / webservers / routing / SQL / NoSQL) and more advanced services (OpenStreetMap / PostgreSQL / PostGIS / enterprise-firewalls).

On these forementioned platforms and systems, I have (among other things) most experience with the following solution-stacks for web-services: LAMP (+ other AMP-stacks) and MEAN. Among catalog-services I have experience setting up and operating SMB/CIFS+OpenLDAP (cross-platform AD-compatibility) and standard *nix-specific LDAP+NFS-structure(s).

I also have normal > advanced experience with more conventional types of operating systems, data-ecosystems and setups (W.A.M.P. / Wintel / Active Directory) / Cisco Catalyst / HP ProCurve and other brands / types of OSI (Level 2+3) enterprise-/datacenter-level networking equipment.

I did consulting work on programming and utilizing MCU's (micro-controllers), for use within an open source "geolocation" framework, while at the same time maintaining / operating and securing the rack-infrastructure (domain, network, web-servers, databases, maptile-servers, geolookup, reverse-geolookup, coordinate-search, and so on) that comprises the backend(s) for the whole framework.

I've dipped my hands in a plethora of computing-environments and usecases, you could basically call me a computing Jack-of-all-trades :P

I've also programmed quite a bit in a heap of different languages, like:
C, C++, Go, Python, Perl, Bash, JavaScript, Angular.js, Node.js, og så videre.
