About me

In all my previous roles I have been highly motivated to learn new things every single day. The eagerness to learn and grow made me come to my current career position. As an IT expert I keep on focusing new things in the market, therefore I keep tracking on the most innovative Microsoft products. If you believe you are an IT expert, every single expert should keep on tracking all products that are quite famous and necessary.

One of my primary tasks are building, configuring and maintaining Microsoft products, however I have been maintaining also other products beside of Microsoft. Analyzing the problems were also one of my main tasks. A problem could be solved easily, however problem-solving is only managed if it is really fixed and does not show up anymore. Analyzing and preventing these problems are one of my tasks I do daily at work, because knowing that you prevented a huge problem makes you more happy than fixing one once it occurred.

I have couple of competences which I believe I would create a difference in an organisation, such as adaptability, disciplinary and teamwork in any circumstances. I am a really hard worker and love to make extra hours to get things finished on time. Also when looking at the mirror I can see that I am very sure of the things I am doing for a company. The responsibility of different projects, planning and others is not a problem at all as I believe I work really hard to become the best.

One of my main tasks I love to do is error prevention. Errors should not pop-up, they should be avoided. I actively monitor all systems and do the necessary maintenance to prevent them. I also love automation, so I keep on scripting to do things much faster and get more information about the stuff that is needed. I mainly code with PowerShell.
