OpenBSD Tattoo

Ugh, I always struggle to write a text about myself. But hey, I’ll give it a shot: Unix system administrator during the day, hacker by night. Dutch nationality, mid-30s, addicted to coffee and philosophy. I (deeply) value ethics, human rights and respect.


I primary use OpenBSD, which has been my daily driver for over 15 years. And yes, the tattoo pictured above is mine - the OpenBSD mascot. The second favorite is HardenedBSD, which keeps my data safe with ZFS. Whenever I am not using my computer actively, I slack and learn through some of the awesome talks at CCC media, read a book, watch a show (Mr. Robot FTW), meet with friends, spend some time outside or work out. I am one of the organisers of Puffbeers, a semi-regular meetup in the Netherlands for BSD aficionados.

This website runs on an OpenBSD VM with the great folks at OpenBSD Amsterdam.


In the modern era, values like privacy and freedom are under constant attack. I am hugely opposed to this and try to help out wherever I can for a more humane world. I am a core member of SecBSD and I am currently creating an anonymous and free to use platform called Kubriks.
