You don't need to come out of your comfort zone, if automation is in it!


Christof lives in Broechem near Antwerp, together with his wife Sara and 2 beautiful daughters Emily and Olivia.

He inherited his passion for computers from his father and grew up between them.

In 2008 he got a job in IT, working mostly for SMB customers. It were interesting times with a switch from physical servers to virtualization and with the shift from on-premises server software, like Exchange, to BPOS and later Office 365.

Later, in 2015, he started working for Xylos as a consultant with mostly Exchange and Office 365. A lot of tasks needed to be automated, so he developed a keen interest in PowerShell.

Since 2017 he is working as a cloud consultant at Xylos, working mostly on Azure projects and automating VMWare with Infrastructure-as-Code, using development techniques like CI/CD pipelines.

Another passion of Christof is target shooting with both air pressure rifles and small and large calibre rifles. He won several titles in various tournaments.

Christof also likes to dodge the infamous Belgian traffic jams on his motorcycle.
