Today, I volunteer to run several websites where I handle the setup, infrastructure and backend to sustain communities. I also write articles, tutorials and documentation and lend my experience to other people. I mostly spend my time managing Minecraft Middle Earth, a community that I founded in October 2010. It is a collaborative effort about recreating the world of Arda and Aman (universe of Eä), the universe of Lord of the Rings, imagined and designed by J.R.R. Tolkien, writer of The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, Histories of Middle-Earth, and novels such as Beowulf. It is home to some very lore-avid people, artsy, tech-wizards and passionate people.
Since we may not profit from intellectual property that is not ours, I decided to handle everything myself by employing a high-performance/low-cost approach. This means managing everything myself, servers, software licenses, installations, policy creation and enactment, and more. By using consumer-grade hardware I managed to cut expenses by a lot, while still having a pretty powerful system compared to more expensive services available on the market.
In my spare time I occupy myself with music, drawing and learning about Information Technology and whatever else that peaks my interest! Though I really like creating and contributing to things on all levels.
