Hi! My name is Maarten Peeters and I'm 30 years old. I'm a infrastructure consultant working in the Netherlands @Portiva. In that role I am responsible for the installation, configuration, maintenance and migration of SharePoint and Office 365 environments. I also work with a variety of Microsoft & and third party products such as Sharegate and Nintex.

I've always been interested in IT and started working as a consultant after my bachelor degree at the Fontys university Eindhoven in 2011. I obtained a fair share of Microsoft certificates during my career as you can see by clicking on the certificate further down.  I'm busy with building websites, maintaining my own servers and learning new stuff most of the time. I'm not a developer but I know my way trough PowerShell, C#, HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. I like to ride my Suzuki Intruder (Motorcycle), work on my miniature railroad, playing the trumpet in an fanfare and started airbrushing a while ago where I also uploaded a few creations as you can see by clicking on Spyro further down.
